If such situations in which we combine spirits and a large number of not very healthy food, start to occur regularly, it is possible to wait not only extra pounds, but also problems with the pancreas or acute pancreatitis. And negative influences of alcohol on the production of collagen contribute to the appearance of the unloved women of the satellite overweight cellulite.
