According to expert, fried meat in combination with alcohol can harm the pancreas.
“Ethanol affects the entire body, including gastrointestinal tract and kidneys. Alcohol removes water, and such minerals as potassium, calcium, magnesium, and zinc leave with it. Vitamins are absorbed worse under the influence of alcohol, and the duet of fatty meat and alcohol increases the risk of damage to the pancreas,” the doctor noted.
Kashukh advises people with diseases of the gastrointestinal tract and cardiovascular system to avoid this combination. In order to reduce the negative impact of fatty foods on body, the doctor recommends replacing pork with beef or chicken, as well as preparing homemade marinade.
The gastroenterologist notes that it’s no good to fry meat to a crisp, as it contains heterocyclic amines, which increase the risk of developing oncology. The expert also recommends adding more fresh vegetables and seasonal fruits and berries to the table.
“It is recommended to eat no more than a portion the size of the palm of your hand at once. The fatter the meat, the smaller the portion should be. Eat slowly and take breaks so you don’t overeat,” Kashukh concluded.
