I work in an alcohol rehab clinic so you can take my word for it that it can, but it obviously depends on the quantity but any type of liquor containing alcohol can damage your liver.

The recommended safety limit for men is 21 units a week with no more than four of those units in one day, for a woman it's 14 units a week and no more than 3 units in any one day.

One 330ml botttle of Mikes Hard Lemonade contains 1.72 units of alcohol x 6 is 10.32 units a day, I don't need to say any more do I?…

Absolutely. Anything that has alcohol in it (beer, wine, Mike's Hard, liquor, etc) can and will damage your liver over time.

Responsibly drinking certain drinks can actually improve parts of your system. For example: 1 glass of red wine per day is proven to actually help out your heart. 1 can of beer can also help benefit your liver by keeping it regulated in certain ways.

Heck yeah,

My brother in law just had emergency surgery to receive a new liver yesterday. He has gone though holy hell with Hep C, liver cancer, cirrhosis of the liver and some horrible related esophagus lesions or something. All because he abused his body with alcohol. It started out in fun, but ended up not so fun. The liver he got was also diseased but it was all he could get! You do not want to be in his shoes.

I actually work in the beverage alcohol industry and enjoy alcohol, including Mike's but I believe in and practice moderation, but if you cannot control your intake, quit and avoid what my brother in law has been going through. And has put his family through.

Enjoy but you need to cut back.

Good luck!

Anything with alcohol can damage your liver, all the sugar in it makes it even worse.

I am above the legal drinking age + have brain cells.
