Anheuser Busch sues for being excluded due to their product not actually being beer
A study at Tuft's University has determined that drinking beer can help bone density. Excerpt:
[Tufts Katherine] Tucker recently participated in a study that showed beer, either dark or light, protects bone mineral density, reported The Harford Courant.
According to Tucker associate professor of nutrition at the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy the alcoholic beverage contains high levels of an ingredient which allows the deposit of calcium and other minerals into bone tissue.
The reason, we think, is that beer is a major contributor to the diet of silicon, the Tufts expert, who is director of the nutritional epidemiology program at the Friedman School, told the Courant.
And protecting bones may not be the only health benefit of beer. Another recent study found that moderate consumption of dark beer which contains antioxidants that help prevent clogged arteries -- may reduce risk of heart disease.
"Honey, I'm not brewing beer; I'm creating the elixir of life." Yeah, that'll work.
