Binge drinkers

Australian Women’s Weekly NZ - - FILM MAKER -

Re­searchers stud­ied the ef­fect of binge drink­ing on the heart at Mu­nich’s an­nual Ok­to­ber­fest. They found that binge drink­ing in­creased the risk of de­vel­op­ing ab­nor­mal heart rhythms. Car­diac ar­rhyth­mias were de­tected in 30.5 per cent of the par­tic­i­pants com­pared with the preva­lence of ar­rhyth­mias in the gen­eral pop­u­la­tion, es­ti­mated at be­tween one and four per cent.
