Drinking Heavily over a Short Period Associated with Abnormal Heart Rhythm
According to a recent study, executed by the team of German scientists, heavy drinking within a short period of time can boost the risk of developing abnormal heart rhythm in healthy people.
For their study, the researchers tracked the heart health and drinking patterns of a group of more than 3,000 men and women, participating at Munich’s Oktoberfest, a Bavarian annual beer festival. They found that about one-third of the group experienced an abnormal heart rhythm, called cardiac arrhythmia, at some point in the festival.
Study co-author Dr. Moritz Sinner, an assistant professor of medicine at University Hospital Munich, explains that these findings are remarkable as for the first time they were able to demonstrate that alcohol has an immediate effect on the heart rhythm.
