Beer the Next Miracle Drink?…Not Quite, but it Does Have Some Positive Health Effects

Beer it does a body good
OK, so beer is far from being some sort of miracle drink with countless positive health effects, but at least it does have some. We all know about the negative effects of alcoholism – liver disease, increased risk of cancer, not to mention drunk driving accidents and such. But many people have never heard about the positive effects of drinking beer in moderation.

Numerous studies have concluded that moderate alcohol consumption, including beer, is associated with a lower risk of cardiac disease, stroke and cognitive decline. Further more, a Japanese study (2005) concluded that low-alcohol beer may possess strong anti-cancer properties. Beer also contains a significant amount of nutrients, including magnesium, selenium, potassium, phosphorus, biotin, and B vitamins.

The key to drinking beer, or any alcoholic beverage, is drinking in moderation. If done this way, drinking beer or wine can actually be good for your body. There may be plenty of people out there that disagree with this, but the facts don’t lie. I say enjoy a beer with dinner or at the game, just don’t enjoy 7 or 8 of them!
