Alchol drinking is prone to dehydration.

In the hot summer sun, some people sweat, drink beer, which they think is the same as water, become dehydrated, and are taken to the hospital by ambulance. In summer, the body is already losing water through perspiration, and drinking beer can lead to dehydration, making it even more dangerous. Bottled water and beer are the same liquid, but they react very differently.

Our bodies maintain a fluid balance by keeping the amount of water entering and leaving the body at a constant level. Dehydration is the result of an imbalance between the amount of water entering and leaving the body.

There are two main reasons for this.

The first is the diuretic effect of alcohol. The first reason is the diuretic effect of alcohol, which causes more water to be released as urine than was consumed.

The second reason is that water is needed to break down alcohol.

Alcohol is converted to acetaldehyde in the body, then decomposed to acetic acid in the body, and further converted to carbon dioxide and water, which are discharged in the form of urine, sweat, exhaled air, etc. Water is needed for the enzymes required for the decomposition process.

In the heat of summer, we are already dehydrated. It is dangerous to think of drinking beer in the same way as water. Beer does not improve dehydration; in fact, it can make it worse.
