When we drink alcohol, our body converts them into acetaldehyde. It is a toxic chemical that can damage DNA and prevents our cells from repairing this damage. A study from the United Kingdom shows that a 21 percent increase of bowel cancers with drinking more than one standard glass of red wine or half a pint of beer a day, compared to non drinkers or occasional drinkers (The International Agency for Research on Cancer, 2011).

Experts concluded that the risk of heart disease is at its peak when a person has been seated for longer than eight hours straight. Remaining sedentary while sitting means that your muscles burn less fat, resulting in slower blood flow. This would then open the gates for fatty acids to clog the arteries of the heart.

“If cancer research was stopped for a single day, there would be a huge protest.

. The impact of depression on older people is entirely different from younger people. However effective treatment of depressed older adults, it often occurs with other medical illnesses and disabilities and it doubles an elderly person's risk of cardiac problems and increases their risk of death from this illness.
