Alcohol can cause irreversible genetic damage to stem cells, says study

“How exactly alcohol causes damage to us is controversial,” said Prof Ketan Patel, who led the work at the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology in Cambridge. “This paper provides very strong evidence that an alcohol metabolite causes DNA damage [including] to the all-important stem cells that go on to make tissues.” [Which may explain how alcohol causes cancers.]
