Watch how much you are drinking

Drinking more than the recommended limits can have a harmful effect on your heart.

  1. It can cause abnormal heart rhythms
  2. Cause high blood pressure
  3. Damage your heart muscles

  2. 1/2 a pint of lager, cider, or beer (3.5% ABV)
  3. 1 small glass of wine 10% ABV
