The wide variety of beer brands sold worldwide delights the palate of thousands of people. However, there will be few fans who will be surprised that some of them could actually be a health hazard.
These are, in short, six brands, very popular in bars, meetings and parties around the world. Consumed at enormous levels every year, but it hides harmful elements in its ingredients, which could be worse in the long run.
The website compiled a list of beers that they claim contain high fructose corn syrup, fish bladder, insect-based dyes, Propylene glycol, among other things.
