Cirrhosis, alcoholic hepatitis, heart attack, ulcer, heart diseases, Ischemic STROKE, gastritis, diabetes, malnutrition and alcoholism are some of the many diseases that can be caused due to excess alcohol. And a new discovery to make this list grow even more.
A survey conducted by Brown University, the United States, showed the strong relationship between the daily consumption of white wine and the skin cancer, even when consumed moderately.
The research, which was published by CNN in Spanish, has shown that those who consume it, specifically the white wine, you are more likely to have melanoma (the most serious type of skin cancer) than those who drink other alcoholic beverages such as beer and red wine.
More than 200 thousand volunteers were involved in the research. They reported their main habits that were mainly: alcoholic consumption, residence, medical history and relationship with exposure to the sun. After nearly 18 years, less than 1% of participants were diagnosed with melanoma invasive.
In the study, the scientists also evaluated closely each type of alcoholic beverage and their relationships with the cancer of the dermis. It was seen that each glass of white wine consumed daily increases about 13% the risk of melanoma, while the other drinks did not show a relative impact in relation to this specific disease.
One of the speculations found by the scientists is that alcohol can leave the body more vulnerable to sunburn. But there are few studies that relate the alcohol with the skin cancer, therefore the results are not conclusive.
Some research suggest that white wine has higher levels of acetaldehyde than the other beverages.
One of the responsible for the study, professor of dermatology and epidemiology at the Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University, Eunyoung Cho, remember that each individual has a different organ that can react in different ways. “For those who drink alcohol, the risks and benefits must be considered individually, including the irrigation related to melanoma.”
