23 Effects of Alcohol on Your Body.

The Effects of Alcohol on Your Body Medically reviewed by Elaine K.

Alcohol's impact on your body starts from the moment you take your first sip.

While an occasional glass of wine with dinner isn't a cause for concern, the cumulative effects of drinking wine, beer, or spirits can take its toll.

Read on to learn the effects of alcohol on your body.

A glass a day may do little damage to your overall health.

But if the habit grows or if you find yourself having a hard time stopping after just one glass, the cumulative effects can add up.

Drinking too much alcohol can cause abnormal activation of digestive enzymes produced by the pancreas.

Buildup of these enzymes can lead to inflammation known as pancreatitis.

Pancreatitis can become a long-term condition and cause serious complications.

Long-term alcohol use interferes with this process.

It also increases your risk for chronic liver inflammation and liver disease.
