Women More Vulnerable to Alcohol’s Long Term Effects on health
According to a press release from Harvard Medical School recently posted on their website, women breakdown alcohol more slowly then men do with their tissues being exposed for a longer period of time to alcohol's effects. The factors affecting this are genes, diet and medications. Recent studies in Japan have shown alcohol to be damaging to arteries and the heart. Other studies have shown alcohol to affect breast tissue.
