Alcohol as a mutagen

Andrew Huberman AI:

Alcohol is a mutagen that can disrupt cellular processes and mutate DNA. In episode #86, I discuss how alcohol affects the cells and tissues of the body, and how it can pass into all the cells and tissues of the body. The clip "Alcohol and Pregnancy" is relevant as it emphasizes that ingesting alcohol during pregnancy is a bad idea as it can cause fetal alcohol syndrome. The clip "Alcohol and Cancer" is also relevant as it explains how alcohol consumption can lead to cancer, specifically breast cancer, by inducing mutations that cause the proliferation of cells, leading to the growth of tumors.
