One of the few meaningful studies to show any links was published in 2012 when an American team of researchers found chronic alcohol consumption led to changes in the nature of the bacteria in the colon. Yet how this change happened and how it impacted health was left unanswered.

    However, in the last few weeks, two important papers have been published to highlight how bacteria contribute to the overall effects of alcoholism.
