Scientists link excessive drinking to diabetes
SEOUL, Oct. 13 (Yonhap) -- South Korean scientists said Wednesday that they have found a cellular-level connection between excessive alcohol consumption and diabetes.

A team led by Kim Won-ho at the state-run National Institute of Health said high alcohol intake causes changes in the glucokinase (GCK) protein responsible for controlling blood sugar levels.
