If you ever thought you would like to give up alcohol for good, maybe it's because of calories or for whatever reason, this just might be the incentive you needed.
People who drink alcohol have dirty mouths crawling with bad bacteria. The study found that drinking alcohol can reduce the "good bacteria" in one's mouth. Liquor changes one's oral microbiome composition and can lead to the proliferation of "bad bacteria" that have ties to cancer and chronic disease. Those are some fancy words, I know.....they came from the Journal Microbiome, lol.
So this might just be the kick in the rear we wanted to never have drink alcohol again. Ironic thing is, that I like the taste of beer on my husband's lips. Is that weird or what?
