once published an article in the Lancet: if you want to be healthy, you’d better not drink at all. Before long, another saying appeared on the Internet: drinking white wine can fight cancer. Is this the lancet?

and

for a time, many people believed it and began to drink liquor freely. Xiaobai’s father is one of the activists.

“since reading the article, my father began to love liquor. He drank two Liang a day. Every time I told him to quit drinking, he would fight me back with cancer. In the end, is liquor anti-cancer true or false

,

,

, and

looked at Xiaobai’s worried appearance. Xiaoai did not lose her appetite and directly announced the answer: liquor does not fight cancer. Why are

? We’re going to look down. Where does the saying

,

and “liquor anticancer” come from? The view of

and

liquor anti-cancer is derived from a research result released by Xu Yan, vice president of Jiangnan University, at the press conference of “major breakthrough in Chinese traditional liquor research” – lichenin is contained in Chinese traditional liquor. Lichenin is a non-volatile peptide compound, which is considered to have anti-virus and anti-cancer effects.

and

were originally “lichenins found in liquor have anti-virus and anti-cancer effects”, but the media reported that “liquor has anti-virus and anti-cancer effects”, which completely changed the flavor. Although

and

lichenin were found in liquor, it does not mean that lichen has biological activity function. Liquor also has the same function, and it does not mean that the same antiviral and anticancer effects can be obtained after drinking liquor.

,

,

and

regard the anti-cancer active substances found in liquor as anticancer when drinking liquor, which is not accurate and has no scientific basis. This practice, presumably, is also the result of some businesses’ intention to exaggerate publicity and some media’s unprofessional over interpretation. Is it true that

and

red wine protect blood vessels?

and

red wine protects blood vessels. I believe many people have heard of it. This argument has been long-standing and derived from a famous paradox: the French diet is very high in calories, a lot of cholesterol, and the incidence rate of cardiovascular disease is not high. Later, some people put forward a hypothesis – although the French eat high calories, they also drink more red wine. It may be that red wine has the effect of protecting cardiovascular system. The unconfirmed conjecture of

and

is obviously in line with the propaganda needs of the majority of red wine merchants. Therefore, the concept of “red wine is beneficial to health” has begun to enter the public’s view. In China, this kind of publicity has been further rewritten to become a more specific “blood pipe sweeper”, which can also “beautify and beautify”.

,

,

,

,

then does drinking red wine have the effect of cardiovascular protection? Scientists are also interested. Some scholars have found a phenolic substance called resveratrol in red wine, which also has antibacterial and antioxidant activities.

however, the current research on resveratrol is limited to this. Scientists have not yet been able to answer the question whether resveratrol is really effective for people, and how much it needs to be effective, or whether there are toxic and side effects, and whether red wine has cardiovascular protection.

as long as it is alcohol, there will be cancer risk! The health functions of

and

wine are basically conjectures, but the risk of alcohol is supported by a lot of solid evidence.

and

as early as 1988, the international agency for research on cancer has declared that alcohol is a carcinogen. The carcinogenic risk of

and

wine comes from many aspects.

,

,

, ,

,

,

for example, acetaldehyde, an intermediate product of alcohol metabolism, can damage human cell DNA, make human cell genes mutate and induce cancer;

and

alcohol can lead to chronic hepatitis, and chronic hepatitis may also form cancer after development;

and

can cause chronic hepatitis

alcohol can damage the oral cavity, esophagus, stomach and intestinal mucosa, and may also induce cancer;

and

alcohol can also hinder the absorption of vitamins and minerals in the intestine, which may cause changes in the inner wall of the intestine, thus increasing the risk of colorectal cancer;

and

alcohol can also change the hormone level of the human body, and women who are addicted to alcohol are more likely to suffer from breast cancer. The definition of

,

and “healthy liquor” is not clear, and the function publicity is suspected of fraud of

and

. Nowadays, many liquor manufacturers are actively committed to developing the so-called “healthy liquor”. Various new Baijiu based on the health preserving view of traditional Chinese medicine emerge in endlessly. The propaganda side’s rhetoric is also in disorder. It not only claims to have health care functions, but also propagandizes that it can prevent diseases.

,

,

, ,

,

,

for this kind of publicity, experts believe that it has been suspected of fraud. At present, no matter what kind of liquor, it is just ordinary food, not health products, and can not do functional publicity.

and

believe that our vigilant readers will not be easily deceived by these propaganda. In fact, even if one day scientists really prove that wine can play a certain role in health care, whether it is worth taking a greater risk to suffer the harm of alcohol is also a question worth measuring.
