Alcohol is a central nervous system (CNS) depressant, so it slows down mental and bodily processes. Alcohol use can affect all parts of the body, but particularly affects the brain, heart, liver, pancreas and immune system. This can result in mental illness, Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome, an irregular heartbeat, liver failure, and an increase in the risk of cancer, among other diseases.
