4. Alcohol Consumption.
Yes it is true that the doctor most likely recommends a glass of wine per day for your health, but there are caveats to this. Alcohol, while beneficial in some ways for your health and stress levels, is quite damaging to your heart and health when consumed more than what is good for health. When you drink alcohol, the ethanol leaches nutrients out of the bone cells and blood, meaning your body rids itself of calcium and vitamin D, which are two nutrients needed for good bone growth and development. Be sure to monitor what and how much you drink if you are at risk for osteoporosis.
