A pit of Chinese “health secret”, carcinogenic damage liver and kidney!Hundreds of thousands of people got cancer from it last year, and millions still believe it
Today we are going to talk about drinking.Drinking is not like smoking, which is clearly labeled “smoking is harmful to your health.”Alcohol has a very different impression in the minds of the masses than tobacco.When the people around you to persuade, alcohol harm body to drink less!Drinking in moderation is good for your health!Many people also take “moderate drinking, good for the body and mind” as the secret of health preservation, drinking a glass of wine every day, feel refreshed and comfortable.But scientific research has found otherwise!Moderate drinking, as well as carcinogenic alcohol, as a representative of Chinese culture, does occupy a place in the hearts of Chinese people.In the eyes of the health people, wine is also indispensable.However, all good in front of the results of scientific research, have to question.In 2018, the Lancet published a study that found that drinking small amounts of alcohol can be bad for your health.Also earlier, in 2017, The BMJ published a study showing that even moderate alcohol consumption can harm The structural and physiological functions of brain tissue.Moderate drinkers had three times as much shrinkage in their hippocampus as non-drinkers.This……What about red wine?Isn’t red wine like white wine?Drink some red wine, can soften the blood vessel, is good for the heart!Red wine’s vascular and heart benefits have been largely exaggerated by its raw grapes and their role in fermentation, such as antioxidants such as anthocyanins, resveratrol and tannins.Admittedly, there are some of these beneficial ingredients in red wine, but it’s a lie to talk about efficacy regardless of dosage.Don’t let a few beneficial ingredients obscure the essence of the wine.Red wine is essentially a wine, containing alcohol.So far, there have been no larger trials proving that red wine is good for heart disease.The main ingredient in wine is ethanol, or alcohol.Alcohol is converted into acetaldehyde and then acetic acid out of the body.It’s acetaldehyde, the conversion between ethanol and acetic acid, that’s scary.Acetaldehyde is a carcinogen, which is clearly listed as a class I carcinogen by the World Health Organization.Even if you don’t see the effects of alcohol in the short term, long-term damage can leave a mark on the body.Perhaps this sentence is not appropriate, but it can explain the problem: moderate drinking, harmful to health, not unreported, the time has not come.What about the long-misinterpreted health advice that no matter how much or how little you drink, even a drop of alcohol, as seen in the top medical journals, is bad for you?Yes, there is a reference to “moderate alcohol consumption” in the 2015 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, but note that the guidelines have a qualifier: “Moderate alcohol consumption for adults.”Adults drink alcohol in moderation. Adults drink alcohol in moderation. Adults drink alcohol in moderation.Drink less!I wonder if you can sense a sense of resignation?And this “moderate drinking” argument was discovered by keen wine merchants, and hit the “healthy”, revealing the meaning of health.In addition, Chinese liquor has a long history, wine culture is deeply rooted in people’s hearts, and there is a tradition of brewing medicinal wine, which can strengthen the body, strengthen the kidney, strengthen Yang, replenish qi and blood, and even prolong life.And greedy wine, urging people, all with a “drink a cup of good”, “do not drink, only drink a small sip” to give themselves to find a reason to stand up and strong.Chinese people are all human, and people are really different.In the case of drinking, foreigners and Chinese drink the same amount of alcohol, and Chinese people suffer more harm than others.Can’t help it. They’re genetically more vulnerable to alcohol than people.Many people may find themselves blushing when they drink, and some say blushing people can hold their liquor better!This is nonsense!Why do you blush after drinking? It’s because the body can’t effectively break down acetaldehyde, which causes blood vessels to dilate, so blushing is inevitable.Drinking on the face of the deepest reason, because most people in the body of acetaldehyde dehydrogenase 2 gene is mutated, this mutation caused alcohol metabolism in the body is not good, that is, acetaldehyde decomposition ability is reduced.Some studies have found that people with a defective gene for the enzyme acetaldehyde dehydrogenase have a higher risk of developing cancer after drinking alcohol.When you said “moderate drinking is good for your health”, did you hurt the Chinese the most?Of course, moderate drinking is not without its benefits, as some researchers have found that low levels of alcohol may have a protective effect against type 2 diabetes and ischemic heart disease.However, it is a matter of balance, because the harm of drinking depends on whether you are willing to bear it.It has long been known that alcohol consumption was responsible for 740,000 new cases of cancer last year, but the extent of the damage was not known.The main diseases caused by alcohol are cancer, with the highest incidence of liver cancer, esophageal cancer, breast cancer, colon cancer, oral cancer and so on.Globally, an estimated 741,300 of all new cancer cases in 2020 could be attributed to alcohol consumption (China accounted for about 280,000 cases), according to a study on alcohol consumption and cancer published in The Lancet Oncology.Moderate alcohol consumption (less than 20g of alcohol per day) was linked to 103,100 new cases of cancer, while consumption of less than 10g of alcohol per day was linked to 41,300 new cases.Cancer is just one of the harmful effects of alcohol.Alcohol damage to the brain, liver, heart, stomach damage also exists in varying degrees.It’s not realistic to tell people not to drink.I can only advise one thing: drink less, drink less, drink less, do not drink for the best.As for our bubble medicinal wine, traditional Chinese medicine extensive and profound, xiaobian here to remind: medicinal wine is certainly medicinal, medicinal is related to the body, do not bubble, use, drink!
