Allergy: recommend no alcohol

April 13, 2011

The Claim: Alcohol Worsens Allergies

Studies have found that alcohol can cause or worsen the common symptoms of asthma and hay fever, like sneezing, itching, headaches and coughing…. Beer, wine and liquor contain histamine, produced by yeast and bacteria during the fermentation process. Histamine, of course, is the chemical that sets off allergy symptoms. Wine and beer also contain sulfites, another group of compounds known to provoke asthma and other allergy-like symptoms.

It is the allergy season now in the United States, so if you are sensitive to pollen, you should not drink wild🙂
