In our culture, alcohol is everywhere. We may have a drink or two at a family dinner or social occasion without even thinking about it. But studies have linked drinking with cancer, even when done in moderation. Long-term use can cause serious health complications, and you don’t have to suffer from the disease of alcoholism to experience the consequences.
In honor or Alcohol Awareness Month in April, host Jonathan Fialkow, M.D., deputy medical director and chief of cardiology at Baptist Health’s Miami Cardiac & Vascular Institute, welcomed a panel of experts to look into the effects of alcohol, the nature of alcoholism, and how to help someone who is battling an alcohol addiction.
