#2 Combats Cancer
Single malt whiskey’s ability to combat cancer is perhaps one of its most surprising benefits. Whiskey contains more antioxidants than red wine, which also helps fights cancer-causing compounds within the body. Ellagic acid, an antioxidant found in whiskey, locks onto free radicals and neutralizes them, killing rogue cancer cells. This prevents your body from coming into contact with carcinogenic compounds. Ellagic acid also combats many other diseases such as Alzheimer’s and dementia. Considering these outstanding benefits, you might be thinking that the more you drink, the more likely you are to safeguard yourself against cancer. On the contrary, it is scientifically proven that overconsumption of whiskey and other alcohols may put you at higher risk for cancer so drink responsibly!
