Bad for your im­mu­nity

Healthy Woman - - HEALTHY LIFE EAT RIGHT -

Ac­cord­ing to a study pub­lished in on­line jour­nal PLOS ONE, a sin­gle episode of binge drink­ing can ad­versely af­fect your health. That one bing­ing episode can re­sult in a fast in­crease of en­do­toxin lev­els in the blood. En­do­toxin is a ma­jor bac­te­rial by-prod­uct that in­ter­acts with the im­mune de­fences. The re­searchers say that th­ese bac­te­rial tox­ins cause the body to pro­duce im­mune cells in­volved in fever,

in­flam­ma­tion, and tis­sue de­struc­tion.
