Why alcohol is dangerous in the heat, doctors explained

Experts note that alcohol disrupts the body’s thermoregulation.

Yes, immediately after a glass of ice-cold beer or gin and tonic, a person will feel relief. But, once in the body, alcohol will change the tone of blood vessels, so thermoregulation will be disturbed. And the feeling of freshness will change stuffiness, lethargy, weakness. In this state, a person can easily overheat and get heatstroke.

In addition, rest in the heat is often accompanied by swimming. But entering the water while intoxicated is dangerous, Brun says. Under the influence of ethyl alcohol the work of the heart speeds upwhich has a very negative effect on him. And because of the sharp temperature drop in the water, it is large risk of coronary spasm. The doctor warns that it will be very difficult to help a person in such a situation, so most of those who drowned in the summer are drunk.


If you do not want to completely give up alcohol, it is better to postpone it for the evening. And in the heat, refresh yourself with fruit drinks, kvass or non-alcoholic cocktails. What’s your favorite drink in summer?
