Dr. is in: Monitoring alcohol use during the holidays

Dr. Vijay joined us to discuss the dangers of alcohol use during the holidays and why you should be concerned about over indulging.

CORPUS CHRISTI (KIII NEWS) - The holidays are here and it is a pleasant time of the year.  It brings with it a lot of good things and the usual celebrations.  As always, it is important not to overindulge in anything.  The usual celebrations include dinners with family and often some alcohol.  It is very important to follow certain rules with regards to alcohol.  A healthy respect for it and only using it in moderation is important.  It is also important to follow the law and not using it if under the legal age limit or offering it to anyone who is under the legal age limit.  This is for many reasons that are well borne out in science.  The health risks of alcohol are higher in the young.  The importance of moderation also cannot be overstated.  This is because binge drinking can be very dangerous to health, and it is even more so for younger adults.
