Why drinking too much doesn’t have to leave permanent damage

As you get older, the damage you inflict on your body often feels permanent. But in many cases, your ailing body can help to heal itself with a little help from you. Heres how to turn back the clock. 

Regenerate your liver
The liver, your bodys main detoxifying organ, is also the most naturally regenerative organ, says Robert C. Huebert, a Mayo Clinic gastroenterologist who specializes in liver transplants. Humans can tolerate a 70 percent recession of liver and the liver will [still grow back].


Thats good liver news for those who occasionally indulge in a night of binge drinking. (Consistent over-drinking, of course, can result in cirrhosis or fatty liver disease, both of which cause permanent damage.)

Sugar can exacerbate liver damage, even causing whats called non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. Bridget Murphy, a registered dietitian at NYU Langone Medical Center, advises cutting back on soda, juice and anything else that packs an overly sweet punch.

Rewire your brain
Research shows that the brain can sometimes rewire itself through the relearning of functions, and the growth and development of stem cells.

[In the case of a] mild brain injury, such as a concussion, most can recover fully, says Barry Jordan, assistant medical director of neurorehabilitation at Burke Rehabilitation Hospital in White Plains, NY. More serious brain injuries are dependent on variables like age, he says, noting those under 50 have a better chance of bouncing back.


Some studies indicate that certain foods can help boost the brain.

With ADHD, omega-3 fatty acids have been shown to fix neurological misfires, says Murphy. The question is, how can it help with Alzheimers, or brain injuries? She suggests adding fatty fish, walnuts and antioxidant-rich foods like blueberries to your diet.

Work on your lungs 
Theres good but cautious news when it comes to lung damage, long believed to be permanent. Some studies have shown the potential for lung-cell regeneration in a lab setting. What this means for future treatment is unclear, however.

For now, damage to lung tissue from smoking is indeed permanent, says Humberto Choi, staff pulmonologist at Cleveland Clinic. But quitting can lead to other benefits including a lowered risk of cancer.

[Coughing] and acute inflammation stop quickly, within days or weeks, and the risk of lung cancer decreases overtime, says Choi. After 10 years, he says, the risk drops to roughly 50 percent of that of a continued smoker. The bodys ability to circulate oxygen also improves.


Some foods can help fight lung dryness and inflammation, says Murphy, who suggests consuming healthy fats, particularly those rich in medium-chain triglycerides, such as coconut oil.

Keep your heart strong
Approximately 15.5 million Americans have one or more types of cardiovascular disease, according to the Mayo Clinic. While much of the damage is irreversible, the muscle can be strengthened to prevent future troubles.

Exercise, diet change and lifestyle change are the three pillars to good heart health, says Richard Novitch, director of the cardiopulmonary rehabilitation program at Burke Hospital. Exercise is the most important, as it lowers cholesterol and blood pressure, and can cause new blood vessels to form. The strain on the heart can lessen, and the heart can remodel itself over time, he says, referring to the arteries ability to reshape themselves to a natural, healthy state.


Diet changes should include decreasing saturated fats, increasing unsaturated fats, and increasing fiber, says Murphy. Try adding chia seeds or flax meal to your breakfast for both healthy fat and fiber.

Starbucks’ Unicorn Frappuccino Is Somehow Even More Basic Than The PSL

Starbucks just launched a new drink today called the Unicorn Frappuccino, and its basically the Mountain Dew of coffee. I mean, even more so than the Frappuccino already is, because thats barely coffee TBH. It’s more like a coffee-based method for 14-year-old betches-in-training to ingest 500 calories of pure sugar. And in case you were wondering exactly how extra this drink truly is, heres the description from Starbucks: Ughhh. Excuse me, I think I just rolled my eyes so hard I need some OJ to help with the comedown.

First of all, it just doesn’t seem that hard for a drink to change from pink to purple. Mermaid Barbie pioneered that technology in like, 1995 to make our bathtimes more magicalso sorry Starbucks, but I am not impressed. Second of all, and most importantly, this sounds disgusting. Like drinking a glass of liquid Nerds. 

The monstrosity drink is only available from April 19-23, or at least thats what Starbucks is claiming, though just like when your man says the Insta model whose photos he keeps liking is “his friend from high school,” were a little suspicious. Much like an actual unicorn, we hope this drink also disappears and goes extinct (Unicorns went extinct, right?). Starbucks wanted to get in on the rainbow trend because apparently the key to getting kids to buy your shit is to make it look like a Kesha music video. Weve already talked about why the rainbow trend is basic, and this drink is no different. I’m sorry to all the boring nice girls out there who think buying colorful shit makes them interesting, but liking mermaids and unicorns and shit as an adult is not a personality. It is a disorder. Seek help. 

So like, WTF is actually in this drink? According to the ingredients page on Starbucks site, theres Mango syrup, Blue Drizzle, Pink Powder, Sour Blue Powder, and Whipped Cream. The blue drizzle is made of Condensed Skim Milk, Coconut Oil, Cocoa Butter, Natural Flavor, Salt, Potassium Sorbate, and Monoglycerides so basically neither fruit nor coffee. Lets be real though, nobodys buying this for the taste. This is strictly an #eatingfortheinsta situation. 

Bottom line, people who like this drink probably liked the movie and dressed up as Harley Quinn for Halloween. The only thing that could save us here is if this is all one big Banksy prank about capitalism, or at the very least a Dumb Starbucks situation. If we really think about it, this is probably our fault in some way. We all used the rainbow Snapchat filters, and now Starbucks is just giving us the Frappuccino version of that. You know what they say, one great Snap Story halfway across the world can have huge affects here at home. They call that shit The Unicorn Effect.
