10 percent of deaths are due to alcohol use

Alcohol use causes immediate and permanent damages in the human body and affects human life very negatively. Explaining the harms of alcohol use on the human body, Faculty Member of Istanbul Gelişim University Department of Exercise and Sports Sciences Assoc. Prof. Dr. Haluk Saçaklı said: “Pregnant women, especially those with alcohol addicts in their families, and those diagnosed with breast and colon cancer should stay away from alcohol. A healthy life is provided by avoiding alcohol, tobacco and substance addictions. If we use our body well, we can live long term.”


Saying that excessive alcohol consumption decreases sexual performance in men, Saçaklı said: “Alcohol consumption poses a great risk in terms of our health. According to the data of the World Health Organization, 7 percent of deaths occur from alcohol use. When we reduce the rate to the age range of 15-49, deaths increase to 10 percent. Today, alcohol consumption underlies nearly 60 diseases. At the same time, excessive consumption of alcohol decreases sexual performance in men. Since it negatively affects the production that enables sperm development, the male glands also shrink and cause impotence.”


Emphasizing that 'Counterfeit alcohol kills people in a short time while non-counterfeit alcohol kills slowly' Assoc. Prof. Dr. Haluk Saçaklı continued as follows: “Alcohol is linked to the heart, liver, and brain. Alcohol especially increases the risk of mouth, throat, breast, liver, colon ulcer and depression. At the same time, alcohol causes calcium deficiency as it wears the muscles and causes dehydration. It increases bone fragility, especially in people over middle age. Another harm of alcohol is that it causes weight gain by those who struggle with weight.”


After the increase of the number of death to 45 in Turkye due to counterfeit alcohol Assoc. Prof. Dr. Haluk Saçaklı talked about the following complaints after the counterfeit alcohol consumption:

“Fake alcohol use occurs with dizziness, unconscious movements and sleep complaints. When citizens have such symptoms, they should apply to the hospital immediately. To find out if an alcohol is fake or not, the Ministry of Health has a 14-digit code, I suggest they use it. Again, in order to understand the counterfeit alcohol, the numbers on the cap of the alcohol bottle and the numbers on the neck of the bottle must match.”
