There's Now "Very Strong Evidence" That Alcohol Can Directly Damage DNA

There is an increasing body of evidence linking alcohol consumption to an increased cancer risk - and now scientists in the UK believe they have found a plausible explanation.

In a new mouse study, the team found that alcohol damages DNA in blood-forming stem cells.

The culprit is a chemical compound called acetaldehyde, a byproduct of the alcohol metabolisation process.

When acetaldehyde isn't broken down further - for instance, when one has consumed alcohol in amounts that the body struggles to metabolise - it builds up in the cells.

This is when it wreaks its merry havoc on DNA, according to researchers from Cambridge University's MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology...
