  • Folks, Doctors say you need to drink Beer, And LOTS of Beer!!!!

    http://apnews.myway.com/article/20060612/D8I6KQVG0.html


    A main ingredient in beer may help prevent prostate cancer and enlargement, according to a new study.


    But researchers say don't rush out to stock the refrigerator because the ingredient is present in such small amounts that a person would have to drink more than 17 beers to benefit.

    Oregon State University researchers say the compound xanthohumol, found in hops, inhibits a specific protein in the cells along the surface of the prostate gland.
    The protein acts like a signal switch that turns on a variety of animal and human cancers, including prostate cancer.
    OK, guys, get a case a day.... :lol:

              This is similar to what has been said in the past. Drinking 2 beers a day (or two glasses of red wine) is reported to help a lot of issues, such as HBP, hypertension, reduce risks of cancer, etc.

                  I think a lot of the wine as a nutritional supplement articles fail to take into account the fact that the people who can afford to drink a glass or two of wine at dinner can also afford better healthcare and live in better conditions than people who cannot.
                  Woof!

                    17 beers a day? Well, I know a few bar drunks that won't be getting prostate cancer anytime soon... heheh.

                    On a side note... My Grandfather drank several mugs of beer (mugs not bottles, not reaching 17 a day though I don't think) and still developed prostate cancer. Go figure...
