Alcohol Effects on the Intestines

Alcohol causes irritation of the lining of the intestinal tract and colon. Chronic drinking may result in inflammation, ulcers and cancer of the intestines and colon. Nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, sweating and loss of appetite are common. Alcohol also impairs small intestine's ability to process nutrients and vitamins.
