Although many prefer to quench their thirst with beer in the heat, drinking this cold drink in such weather can cause health problems. This was told to Gazeta.Ru by a gastroenterologist, candidate of medical sciences Ekaterina Kashukh.

She explained that in hot weather, the body is severely dehydrated, losing fluid and useful minerals along with sweat. Alcohol only contributes to this process. In addition, if you imperceptibly exceed the required dose of beer, alcohol intoxication against the background of dehydration and heat will be more pronounced, this will also increase the recovery time.

According to Kashuh, beer does not actually cool the body – this effect will be very short-lived. On the contrary, alcohol dilates blood vessels, so after a fleeting sensation of coolness, the body will become hot again. Moreover, this drink creates an additional burden on the liver and cardiovascular system.

Thus, people who have liver or heart disease are advised to completely abstain from drinking alcohol.

To quench your thirst, you should choose soft drinks – teas, fruit drinks, natural lemonade, mineral water, which is especially useful, as it helps to restore the salt balance.
