There's no safe amount of alcohol, study says
This New Study Suggests White Wine Might Trigger Rosacea
It looks like science just chose a side in the "red wine versus white wine" debate.
According to a new study published in theJournal of the American Academy of Dermatology, researchers have discovered that alcohol can have quite an effect on your skin, and white wine is by far the biggest culprit. In particular, the study sought to determine if there is a link between alcohol consumption and the development of rosacea, a skin condition that causes redness, swelling, and bumps — and as it turns out, there is.
Using data from the Nurses' Health Study II, the study's researchers tracked 82,737 women's self-reported alcohol intake over the course of 14 years, as well as if and/or when they were diagnosed with rosacea. In total, they found 4945 cases of rosacea, and that increased alcohol intake "significantly increased" a woman's risk of developing it.
But more than that, white wine seemed to have the most dramatic effect of all: If you only enjoy a couple glasses a month, you increase your risk of developing the skin condition by 14 percent. If you indulge in a glass a week or more, that percentage goes up to 49 percent.
Of course, not every beverage put up such high numbers. AsAllurepoints out, other forms of alcohol didn't have quite so big a correlation with the development of rosacea — and for some reason, red wine had no effect at all.
