The Relationship Between Obesity and Alcohol Hi, I'm Dr. Mark Savant and welcome to Savant MD. Today’s wellness tip is about obesity and alcohol.

We already know that being obese causes damage to the liver, so adding the effects the heavy alcohol consumption to that cannot be good. I think the take home message from this study is something we probably already know that we should maintain a healthy weight and drink in moderation.
