Beer=Psoriasis?

17 Aug

Nooo! Say it aint so. My mom might like this fact since she gets disgusted when I tell her that I am a fan of beer. However, I hope for my sake that this isn’t true. In the event that is is, I will try to switch beer with wine or some other libation.  Speaking of libations, I drank sparkling water instead of my lover Diet Coke during lunch today. Baby steps…

“The participants — aged 27 to 44 at the beginning of the study — were followed for 14 years. Researchers found that as the women’s beer consumption increased, so did their risk to the skin condition. During the course of the study, 1,150 cases of psoriasis developed, and the risk was 72 percent greater among women who had an average of 2.3 nonlight beers per week or more. Women who drank wine, liquor, or light beer seemed to be unaffected, leading researchers to believe that barley — or more specifically, the gluten in barley — is the culprit.”
