Keto Cappuccino Ice cream

So I was offered an opportunity to review a high quality, hand-crafted, organic coffee! With this coffee, I also whipped up a new low carb ice cream recipe: “Keto Cappuccino Ice cream!”

Wood-Fire Roasted Coffee Company

This is a unique little brand that roasts their Arabica beans in a specially designed small batch wood roaster. This gives the beans a little extra tinge of smoky flavor.

They were kind enough to send me a bag of beans to give a try. Now, as you probably know, I love Coffee. You might even call me a coffee snob.

6 Terrifying health dangers of alcohol!

dangers of alcohol

Hey everyone, Yossif here. I’ve recently decided to severely cut down my drinking for a multitude of reasons. For one, it’s expensive. For two, you act like an idiot if you drink too much. For three, it’s a good way to pack on extra fat. Other than that, it’ll… you know… SLOWLY KILL YOU? Either way, I’m trying to avoid it as best I can for a while. It’s good to detox from it for as long as you can. It’s fun, but is it really worth it?

Amelia Verona is a health writer with the European Health Insurance Card company. She offered to help me out with a guest post and I asked her to do a write up on all the health risks associated with drinking. We all need reminders that one night of partying can lead to lifelong health issues. These 6 dangers of alcohol are enough to make me think twice before taking a shot.


 

6 terrifying health dangers of alcohol!

wineThe dangers of alcohol on health remain an indubitable truth. When you drink wine, beer or other alcoholic stuff, the liquid is absorbed by your blood quickly and tends to remain ingrained for about 2 hours, a point that is again dependent on your age, weight, gender and other physical parameters. The stomach and the small intestine are prone to devour most of the alcohol you are consuming while a tiny amount goes out of the body through your urine and breath.

Consuming foodstuffs that are rich in fat attenuates the pace of alcohol absorption by the blood and the body. Many are of the notion that infrequent or occasional alcohol hanging may not affect health. However whether you are a regular drinker or go on alcohol sprees on few occasions drinking beyond the sensible drinking limits may pose serious threats to your health. Here are 6 major dangers of alcohol:

1. Liver:

Everyone knows that alcohol is going to damage your liver, but it’s worse than you might think. Alcohol is extremely harmful to the liver cells and may lead to a plethora of liver issues and inflammatory conditions including Cirrhosis, Fibrosis, Fatty Liver or Steatosis and Alcohol Hepatitis. The liver cells do possess the potential to repair quite some amount of damage done by the alcohol by breaking it up, burning it, and making use of it as fuel. However, frequent drinking can hinder this very ability of the liver, scarring it and causing permanent damage.

2. Heart:

Alcohol may both be beneficial as well as detrimental for the heart. Alcohol, if taken within the sensible limits of maximum (1 drink for a woman and two drinks for a man on per day basis), can help alleviates development of heart diseases. However, too much drinking either taken at one shot or over a span of time can lead to disastrous effects on the heart. It increases blood pressure, which in turn raises the chances of heart diseases, strokes, and leads to abnormal pace of heart rhythms like ventricular and atrial fibrillation. There are also good chances of gaining weight and accumulation of fat especially along the waist and belly which may result in various weight-related heart issues.

3. Cancer:

In the UK, alcohol has been found to be responsible for being the cause for about 4 % of cancer cases. The simple fact is that the effects of alcohol go far beyond those drowsy feelings, hangover, or blurred memories of what happened the previous day. However, alcohol does augment the chances of getting liver cancer, breast cancer, mouth cancer, laryngeal cancer, pharyngeal cancer, oesophageal cancer and bowel cancer. (Ethanol is technically a carcinogen, after all!)
