Which Is Worse For Your Liver Beer Or Liquor?


What is worse for you body Beer or Liquor?

What is worse for your body beer or liquor? I am the kind of person that perfers liquor over a beer. I usually do one or two shots or drink it with coke. (I do drink water inbetween) So which is worse?

Beer and hard liquor's active ingredient which intoxicates you is the same: Ethanol.

So, assuming the exact same actual quantity of alochol is consumed, they are the exact same.

With that said, beer and liquors aren't solely comprised of ethanol. They also include sugars and other ingredients to make the overall flavour and texture.

Beer before liquor will make you sicker. Is this quote true?

I'm pretty sure most of you have heard the quote/saying : "Beer before liquor, will make you sicker. Liquor before beer, you're in the clear" Is there any scientific truth to this?

beer will start to get you drunk, then when you start taking liquor, it sucks up all the water in your body very fast, making you drunker and will probably end up sick or with a worse hang over.

liquor to beer is just a slower way of getting drunk which should allow your body to adjust "better" than liquor.

so yes the saying is pretty close to accurate for most ppl.

Why do I vomit every time immediately after I drink beer or liquor?

Last year I never got drunk but I could drink beer, never tried liquor at the time but then at one party I had a few cups of liquor mixed with sprite and around 10 beers. I got really drunk and ended up puking the night away. Ever since that night if I drink a few sips from a beer, a few shots of liquor or even a margarita I have to rush off to the bathroom to vomit. Thoughts or advice? It's like my stomach can't handle alcohol anymore

It could be a possible gallbladder or liver problem, but you might even just have a stomach issue.

If you are disgusted by alcohol, it would of course make you sick, but if you enjoy it, then if would otherwise be a health issue.

I would go check with your doctor to see what is causing it because if it is a health issue it could cause even worse problems in the future.

What are the chances of Beer damaging your liver?

Someone told me that beer has only 3% of Alcohol in it and that it is not enough to damage his liver or kill him. I personally find Beer disgusting and find people who drink it extremely obnoxious.

Beer ranges from 3 to up to 20% alcohol content. (Most range from 4 to 6 percent). They key is how much they drink, small amounts are not hepatotoxic (liver damaging) as it can be metabolized with little damage, but large amounts can definitely cause liver disease and damage.


In response to below,
beer is brewed in strengths greater than 20% alcohol by volume, included is Samuel Adams Millennium at 20%, Utopias at 26%, Delaware's Dogfish Head's World Wide Stout, a 21% In Japan in 2005, the Hakusekikan Beer Restaurant sold an eisbock, 28%.The beer that is considered to be the strongest yet made is Hair of the Dog's Dave—a 29% abv barley.

The alcohol content does not determine the category malt liquor vs. beer. Malt liquor refers to a specific type of beer which is of high content while being produced from malted barley.

The key is the amount of alcohol which is taken it, large amounts of alcohol, no matter what for is not good for liver function or health in general.

Why if you drink beer before liquor you've never been sicker? Why?

Beer before liquor, never been sicker....liquor before beer, you're in the clear Why does the order of consumption of these types of drinks matter to your body?

put them both in a glass in both orders and see what happens.

Beer - bubbly, carbonated, light
Liquor - Heavy, sometimes sugary

If the heavy stuff has to fight thru the light stuff to sink (gravity) its going to stir the pot a bit.
