Dash Eating Plan

Alcohol and Heart Disease

Alcohol can hurt the heart, but it may also help the heart. Any alcoholic drink causes a small but measurable change in heart cell function. Too much alcohol over time can enlarge the heart and weaken the heart muscle. When this happens, the heart muscle cannot pump blood as well. Eventually, this can lead to heart failure, which means that the heart muscle cannot pump enough blood to meet the body's needs. Heavy drinking of alcohol is also a common cause of irregular and fast heartbeats, called atrial fibrillation.
