Alcohol helps bacteria to enter the liver says a new study
|source:-via google search|
They found that more REG3G reduced bacterial growth. Likewise, restoring REG3G in mice protected them from alcohol-induced fatty liver disease, a condition that precedes liver cirrhosis, or end-stage liver disease.
Not only do patients with alcohol dependency have lower levels of REG3G than healthy people, they also have more bacteria growing there, the study found.
