Potential Risks Of Drinking Vodka
Drinking large amounts of vodka, which sometimes occurs because a person has purchased a handle of alcohol, can cause a number of problems. Not only can excessive drinking cause health issues, but it can also create problems with your social, family, and work life.
Vodka can be used with other additives and mixers for a variety of drinks. Flavored vodka and dressing up drinks with garnishes can make alcoholic drinks appealing, increasing the risks of binge drinking and heavy drinking.
