Heavy Drinking may Cause Damage to Skeletal Muscles

People who drink heavily daily for around two years may face the risk of damaging their skeletal muscles, Australian researchers have found.

"Heavy drinking is more likely to cause damage to skeletal muscles than livers or brains," Australian researcher Simon Worrall from the School of Molecular and Microbial Sciences at the University of Queensland said.

It is known that heavy drinkers face severe health risks although moderate drinkers tend to enjoy better health.

People who consume around eight drinks a day for around two years are at an increased risk, the online edition of Australia Broadcasting Corp quoted the researchers as saying.

However the scientists said the damage is unlikely to be life threatening but will see muscles become weaker.
