New Study suggests that alcohol can damage your DNA

A new study has revealed that the consumption of alcohol can damage your DNA and increase the chances of developing cancer.

The study, which was conducted at the MRC Laboratory of Molecular biology at the University of Cambridge showed that alcohol can cause a lot of problems to the DNA including altering its sequence.

“Some cancers develop due to DNA damage in stem cells. While some damage occurs by chance, our findings suggest that drinking alcohol can increase the risk of this damage,” noted the lead author.
