if you think that it is ok to RISK your life because you like BEER so much. then go ahesd and clean the gene pool for the rest of us. everything i have ever read on booze and how it relates to ones liver has been negative. every one states. booze KILLS liver cells. and if your liver is in hep-c mode, itt needs all the tlc you can provide for it. please don't take the chance.
