WARNING … STOP EATING BEER BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE!!!

By Bernard Quatermass / August 19, 2019


We all have the notion that eating beer would be the better option over cheeseburgers 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.

According to a study published in the New York Times, beer may actually raise the risk of breast cancer. Other studies link beer to lymphoid cancers and lung cancer.

    

The Institute for Advanced Studies said it did not have enough data to define how much beer is too dangerous, but said the risk grows with the amount consumed. Analysis suggested that a 50-gram portion of beer daily - or about 1.75 ounces - increases the risk of colorectal cancer over a lifetime by about 18 percent.

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

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 the Institute for Advanced Studies found that adults who consumed high levels of beer for just two weeks had increased levels of carcinogens, raising their risk of heart disease.

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.
