Switch to lower-alcohol beer for better health
Drinking weaker beer can profoundly benefit your health, according to the Lancet Gastroenterology
And Hepatology journal. If you don’t want to give up drinking entirely, reducing your intake of ethanol – the most harmful ingredient in booze – limits blood alcohol levels and so reduces the risk of injuries or accidents, as well as alcohol-related chronic diseases such as cirrhosis and cancer. When given lower-alcohol drinks subjects didn’t overcompensate by drinking more than those given stronger drinks, and had significantly lower blood alcohol levels.
