For many people, alcohol means fun and is part of it. However, it is advisable to watch your alcohol consumption. At an older age, the body tolerates alcohol worse than at a young age.
This is because the elderly have less body water and a relative increase in fat. In addition, in many elderly people the liver and kidneys work less and the physical resistance decreases. As a result, the same amount of alcohol leads to higher blood levels, lower tolerance and faster intoxication and organ damage. In other words, the elderly are generally more likely to be drunk and a small amount of alcoholic beverages can sometimes already have harmful effects.
