5 mistakes many people make when drinking alcohol

Drinking alcohol on an empty stomach, eating noodles, carrots, drinking tea or taking a bath after drinking … will all harm the body, even endanger life.

1. Drink on an empty stomach

A new study based on a survey and tracking of 2,600 adults found that drinking alcohol on an empty stomach increases the risk of high blood pressure. Specifically, people who often drink alcohol on an empty stomach are 1.5 times more likely to develop high blood pressure than those who eat on an empty stomach and then drink.

Previous studies have linked heavy drinking with high blood pressure, but this new study goes one step further. People who drink small amounts without eating are more likely to have high blood pressure, even if they drink less. Men and women both had similar results, regardless of the type of alcohol.
