GERMAN’S PROTEST –  

Oct. 20, 2021 – If having a few beers after a long day of work is a regular habit for you, you may be putting your pancreas in harm’s way.

A 2012 study published in Diabetes Medicine found that, among a group of 5,128 men and women between 35 and 56 years old, high beer consumption was associated with a higher risk of pre-diabetes among male study subjects. Men are already at a higher risk of pre-diabetes than women, with 37.4 percent of American adult men being diagnosed with pre-diabetes while that number is just 29.2 percent for women. Considering that anywhere between 5 and 10 percent of those with pre-diabetes develop type 2 diabetes, an irreversible condition that impairs energy metabolism and increases the risk of complications like heart disease and kidney disease, men may think it wise to cut back on their beer intake.
