|2,600 men living in Eastern Finland were followed for between 11 and 20 years with particular attention paid to their alcohol consumption. Although heavy alcohol consumption has been linked with many medical conditions, in this case, the results were very clear.|
Men who “alcohol binged” more than twice weekly, increased their risk of death from a stroke.
MY TAKE- For a very long time, I’ve been a teetotaler. As it turns out, heavy alcohol drinking leads to “shortgevity” and I’m looking for healthy “longevity!”
Alcohol is the mycotoxin of the Saccharomyces yeast, or “brewer’s yeast.” Other mycotoxins besides alcohol can also be introduced into alcoholic beverages through the use of mold-contaminated grains and fruits. Producers often use grains that are too contaminated with fungi and mycotoxins to be used for table foods, so the risk is higher that you are consuming more than just alcohol in your beverage.
