Why the hell is it so hard to find nutrition facts for alcohol?

Maybe I'm wierd, but I always look at the nutrition facts of everything I eat, whether it be candy, a drink, or a meal. I like to know what I'm eating. I try to eat things with only certain amounts of sugar, protein (the more the better), and also check the ingredients to see how much unnatural shit is thrown in. I don't like to drink things with high fructose corn syrup listed as one of the first two ingredients, it makes me feel nasty just thinking about it.

But I'm sitting here drinking a bottle of Kahlua today and there is nothing listed on the bottle, and there's nothing listed on the box (I bought a 4 pack). So I come online to check and I can't find shit. I couldn't find even one single website that had the nutrition facts OR the ingredients listed. This is stupid, I thought it was a law to list this shit. What if I'm allergic to something? Surely that's bound to happen once in a while right? Someone drinks something they never have before that could have an ingredient that makes them sick or have an allergic reaction? I'm not allergic to anything but I still wanna know how much shit is in my drink. How is this allowed, and more importantly, anyone know where I can find out the nutrition facts for Kahlua?...or ant alcohol for that matter? We could be drinking horse piss for all we know.

wine is, not so sure about beer. Beer uses ethanol alcohol I believe, which is not good for you. Wine makes it's own alcohol (aged grapes). A glass of wine a day is supposed to help you live longer. A can of beer a day will prolly do nothing except damage your liver lol. Although I could be wrong since I don't KNOW WTF IS IN MY BEER! Maybe it has baby angel dandruff or something that gives you superpowers.

yeah, wine is actually good for you... but as much as i love a good single mault... it's poison!

and i'm the last person to knock beer, but it's surely not good for you!

wine only has antioxidants... hell, chocolate is good for you now too!!!

whiskey, racism, money, grease, twinkie's, guns.....yep lol thats about it

The beer sounds like it kills off illnesses in the short term, but in the long run when your liver starts getting weak, you'll be a lot more susceptible to illnesses. Beer usually makes me feel like shit anyway, the ethanol screws with my blood sugar and it always dehydrates me superfast. Liquor doesn't bother me as much though.

Basically the only thing worst than your body (legally) than drinking is smoking. Yeah rank it up there like that. It's awful for you. Cheers though.
