Beer can be good for you

MODERATE consumption of beer helped protect the liver from cirrhosis and other diseases, a Spanish researcher said yesterday.

Susana Martinez from the University of Leon spoke at a conference of nutrition experts in Barcelona, Spain.

Beer contained anti-oxidants called flavonoids which helped to protect the liver from inflammatory processes, Ms Martinez said.

A moderate consumption amounted to 33 centilitres for women and twice that amount for men daily.

SWEET. Despite its status as carb-heavy and therefore Buddha-producing, I love beer so very, very much. HOWEVER, that "men get twice as much" thing is bulls**t. More research needed on that fine point, thankyouverymuch. (link from Aussie News)
