There's a chance that you're harming your heart with holiday binge-drinking.
In a recent study, cardiologist, Dr. Stefan Brunner said: "We cannot yet conclude that a higher heart rate induced by alcohol is harmful.

So it is plausible that the higher heart rate following alcohol consumption could lead to arrhythmias."
