Alcohol consumption is associated with an increased risk of erosive esophagitis and Barrett's epithelium in Japanese men.

Alcohol consumption may make erosive esophagitis and Barrett's esophagus more likely to occur in men.

​This study determined the role alcohol consumption play in the development of erosive esophagitis and Barrett's esophagus in men. Researchers examined the health and lifestyle data of 463 Japanese men who had undergone an upper gastrointestinal tract endoscopy. 

Researchers observed higher risk of erosive esophagitis and Barrett's esophagus among alcohol consumers compared to non-consumers of alcoholic drinks. This study provides evidence that frequent intake of alcohol may accelerate the development of erosive esophagitis and Barrett's esophagus in men.
