Many of those who are overweight or obese and want to lose weight are interested in: can this be achieved with the help of drugs? No you can not.
They may object to me: but there are medicines that suppress appetite!

But many underestimate the most insidious property of alcohol – to form a pathological dependence, a painful attraction to alcohol, that is, alcoholism. The transition from the habit of “drinking a little” to alcoholism occurs, as a rule, imperceptibly.
Those who think that only strong alcoholic drinks are dangerous to health are deeply mistaken. Determined that. after drinking two glasses of beer, a person gives his body the same alcohol load as if he had drunk 100 grams of vodka. Continue reading
