Switch to lower-al­co­hol beer for bet­ter health

Men's Fitness - - Last Word -

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.
