Will Drinking A Lot Of Alcohol Affect My Risk Of Developing High Blood Pressure?

Question: Will drinking a lot of alcohol affect my risk of developing high blood pressure?

Answer: Yes, high intake of alcohol does increase risk of high blood pressure. This means for men, more than two drinks or more per day of alcohol. For women, this would be more than one drink of alcohol per day. Excess amounts of alcohol above those levels would increase your risk of high blood pressure substantially during your life.
