Could a glass of beer a day help you live longer?
Researchers at the Mediterranean Neurological Institute in Italy seem to think so. They’ve published a study showing that drinking moderate amounts of beer daily could reduce the risk of heart disease by up to 25 per cent.
The team concluded, after conducting a comprehensive review of more than 150 studies, that drinking up to 2.8 pints of beer a day for men, or half that for women, could have a beneficial effect on the health of your heart.
Swilling down gallons of beer every week is obviously NOT good for your health or your waistline.
But in moderation, beer has actually been shown to have medical benefits – from improved sexual performance (yes, really) to helping keep your brain sharp
