North and East Gelderland

Drinking alcohol also has disadvantages:
- Alcohol makes you sleep less well;
- The effect of medicines can be reduced or strengthened by alcohol;
- Alcohol increases the risk of many cancers, such as breast cancer, mouth and throat cancer and colon cancer. Even one glass a day increases this chance;
- Alcohol contains a lot of calories and makes you feel hungry, which makes you gain weight.
