Frightening Warning About Beer

By Ian Malcolm / August 18, 2018


We all have the notion that eating beer would be the better option over donuts when it comes to health. And the truth is, it really is ... most of the time! Beer is a low-fat, high-protein food that has a range of health benefits. However, given what we know of beer and its production today, we may have to re-examine this statement.

Environmental Working Group warned in "The Weekly World News" that beer can contribute to the development of colic, allergies and digestive problems.

    

Since 1980, the US obesity rate has risen proportionately to the increase in consumption of beer, and Americans are now consuming at least 200 calories of beer each day. Research published by Environmental Working Group found that adults who consumed high levels of beer for just two weeks had increased levels of bad cholesterol, raising their risk of heart disease.

According to the Environmental Working Group, the "first-ever tests of beer show that they are likely the most bad cholesterol-contaminated substance in the U.S. food supply." Bad cholesterol is actually a very toxic chemical that can contribute to cancer and other complications. The problem with bad cholesterol is that once it enters our system, it can take a very long time until it leaves. Grimly, the half-life of bad cholesterol is about 7 to 11 years!

Researchers at Environmental Working Group have concluded that beer contains very high levels of the potentially dangerous bad cholesterol. How dangerous is it? Eating beer could be far worse for your heart health than eating donuts!

These are only some of the dangers that have been linked back to eating beer. What does this tell us? No. 1, we need to find out where our beer is coming from. Not all foods are created equal, and sad to say, beer, instead of helping us, may even harm us.
