Beer linked to psoriasis in women

Well, I suppose it can’t all be good news.

According to a study published in the Archives of Dermatology, women who drink beer are more than two times as likely to develop psoriasis than non-drinkers. Other types of alcohol, including light beer (snicker), wine and spirits don’t seem to have the same effect. The culprit appears to be gluten from the barley, as the psoriasis sufferers were more sensitive. No word if bread or pasta had a similar effect.
