Why Drinking alcohol causes cancer
Drinking Alcohol is killing us
"Inspiration to write is found everywhere today, and mine was to write about alcohol consumption, and its harsh unseen threats towards our overall health"
I like to think of consuming alcohol as killing my brain cells, because actually that's what it does, and so it instantly deters me from picking up and drinking anymore period.
I never really knew what harm it could do when I was much younger and recently learned that alcohol is an extremely acidic beverage that can steer our blood stream rapidly towards the cancer zone.
Meaning that those who drink are even much more susceptible to contracting cancer, due to the fact that the blood stream needs to be more alkaline , then acidic , and by consuming any alcoholic beverage drops a persons immune system instantaneously towards the acidic zones, besides doing harm to the brain by lessening the oxygen levels that are provided by red blood cells, and pretty much suffocating it. This is one main reason why people tend to black out, get dizzy spells, and hang overs actually.
(PH balance is the goal for good health, our blood should be at 7.365 on the PH scale, and according to wikipedia our blood PH should be regulated between 7.34-7.45 on the PH scale.)
This surely unseen health hazard by alcohol consumption Is largely from a blood acidosis condition that quickly emerges, and people have no clue what long term damage its doing to their overall health, lets forget about the chances of getting a DUI or DWI, and all the other negative issues, and baggage that may also occur in the event of being overly intoxicated.
So this is what pretty much halts me in my thought process prior to even thinking about buying a alcoholic beverage, and instead I'm more into drinking green smoothies, and water today, which is the direct opposite of the poisonous alcoholic condition many have fallen victim to time and time again. Actually by adding fresh water, and organic fresh green juices to your diet your chances of getting cancer drops tremendously.

Education is key today!
People need to be re-educated on the whole issue of health overall, and if that we're to occur, such realities as alcoholism may actually be put to an end altogether.
What stopped me in my tracks of drinking was, when I was a Navy Sailor many years back, and when I went out clubbing one night with some cool friends, and I had a bit to much of Bacardi 151. (It has a alcohol content of 75.5% according to wikipedia). So I ended up with tubes all in me in the Hospital, and I almost died from alcohol poisoning right then and there that night.
How the events turned out that night
I had blacked out pretty much, in the dance club's bar area while sitting down at a table, and I hadn't the slightest clue that I was taken by a few Navy friends thereafter back to our Naval barracks where we had resided, and the patrolling petty officers on duty at the time called the ambulance.
Mean while I was unconscious the whole time, and luckily if it weren't for being with some good friends, anything worse could have resulted. The point I'm driving at is, its definitely not worth dieing for, the whole so-called fun of drinking, and the thoughts of partying it up with friends all crazy, all the time. It all spells future alcoholism, and even worst potential death, by many means to such a potential tragic end as its been for many unlucky people who unfortunately didn't escape the alcoholism trap.
A helpful & Inspirational hubber and truly awesome writer
I have written many hubs on the topic of health, but this time its one that has been inspired and motivated by a fellow hubber who shows he cares for the likes of others besides himself, and I located such a hub by him on Facebook.
He goes by the screen name of "the clean life", and I think literally that's what he projects to his viewers, readers, and fans on hubpages, which is that of a much more sober lifestyle to live and lead today.
He just wrote a cool self help article titled,"Things To Think About If You Feel You May Relapse" its on the topic of alcoholism, and it cant hurt to show him some love by giving it a try, especially for the fact that it is set out to help us all, whether we are an alcoholic, one who's recovering, or even if we simply just casually drink. Its great advice for us all to share with our loved ones as well, and he goes into great detail as to many tips about relapsing. It also helps people find ways out of such a retched condition by thinking wisely, and using better judgement.
Drinking definitely takes its toll on the body and on the precious mind
What is homeostasis?
Its our bodily way of adjusting our immune system to eventfully fight off disease, and to regain internal biochemical balance and stability pretty much, but the official definition is as follows.
"Homeostasis - is the property of a system that regulates its internal environment and tends to maintain a stable, constant condition of properties such as temperature or pH. It can be either an open or closed system." (Directly referenced from Wikipedia)
The reason why I've chosen to place focus on this definition isn't because I'm a doctor and trying to lecture some students on the subject, or because I just wanted to show case some technical biochemical terminology, its because it pertains to helping people get a closer look into what is actually going on in our brain and blood stream before, and after we decide to consume substances and that of alcohol since that is the very issue being discussed in this article.
Let's drink to that!
Drink now or forever hold your peace, what is wrong with us?
If soda isn't a good thing for your PH balance, then why would alcohol be any better, and so I think of this before ever thinking of picking up an alcoholic beverage, because the damage we are doing to ourselves health wise today is unprecedented, and the numbers of people dieing from all sorts of cancers are getting to become staggering.
My mom died of breast cancer, and my grandad died of throat cancer, and so this gives me all the reason to hate it with a vengeance, and I will do my duty to put an end to the whole cancer thing if its the last thing I do, and so to end this article I leave folks with this thought.
- Alcohol leads the trail for the quickest and shortest least resistant path to bringing your immune system down and straight into cancers door steps, because its a straight shot to the blood stream, so just think about that prior to picking up a single bottle of beer, or a shot glass, or any other terrifying containers that lead to the whole abuse itself.
Stop Drinking poison already
The reason for beginning the last paragraph with homeostasis is because many people haven't the slightest clue about our bodily systems, because if they actually did, well no one would actually be drinking alcohol for that matter.
This I believe is so, due to the lack of the education system not knowing the truthful knowledge of what blood alcohol levels can actually cause entirely, and the catastrophic diseases that are an end result of flooding the system into a severe acidic state, also known as acidosis. This actually occurs quite frequently to people without them even knowing it, and its mainly caused by consumption of the wrong foods, and non alcoholic beverages.
"Acidosis is an increased acidity in the blood and other body tissue (i.e., an increased hydrogen ion concentration). If not further qualified, it usually refers to acidity of the blood plasma." (Directly referenced from wikipedia)
If you were to truly know at all times, that in which you were actually consuming, and the bodily harmful effects of each item you chose to eat or drink on a cellular scale.
Then and only then, would a person decide to make a much more clearer decision, as to even taking such a risky choice to drink yet any substance other than that of water. This is a given fact mainly, because many of the modern day convenient ways of consuming foods and drinks are leading directly towards cancers way, and especially that of alcohol consumption.
