Your Heart Before and After Alcohol

A recent picture posted on showed just how much damaged excessive drinking can do to the human heart.

The post showed a healthy heart next to the heart of someone with alcoholic cardiomyopathy. The deadly heart condition is triggered by drinking more than 70 units of alcohol a week. This amounts to about 7 bottles of wine a week, over a period of 5 years or more.

The condition causes the heart to become enlarged and in the worst cases can be fatal or require a heart transport.
