Excessive alcohol consumption can lead to dehydration on hot summer days: Experts Updated: 2019-08-05 17:03:56 KST

An ice-cold beer may sound perfect on a hot summer day like today, but experts warn that alcohol can cause dehydration more easily in the heat.
They say alcohol causes you to urinate more often and you lose more water through sweat.
In the heat, you can lose twice as much fluids than normal.
The hot weather also increases the effects of alcohol and can aggravate cardiovascular problems in people with high blood pressure.
If you have to, drinking plenty of water before, during and after consuming alcohol is advised, especially during the summer.
