Despite years of hearing otherwise, I recently read that even moderate alcohol consumption has no health benefits.
After a drink or two, I notice that I fall asleep faster than usual. But, increasingly, I find that sleep doesn’t last, as I awaken in the middle of the night and often have a hard time getting back to sleep. What’s going on?
“Dry January” has become increasingly popular. But does abstaining from alcohol for a single month in a year really make a difference?
Understanding the science of overindulgence might help avoid the pain.
