    Now this was a surprise to me. Of course, many such nutritional studies are disproven and reversed a year or so later. And I doubt I'll be running out and getting some beer, since I've never liked it. Even when I lived in Germany, and friends told me I'd finally learn to enjoy the stuff. And my Father's preferred drink while watching baseball on TV at home, or when going over to Yankee stadium in NYC to watch his favorite team.

    Nevertheless I thought an interesting aricle. With the proviso to not drink more than 2 glasses a day for a man.

    What-the-fuck-ever scrub! LOL

    Shit tastes nasty as fuck and for all those "nutrients" that you could get from it....might as well eat ACTUAL food. These studies are "meh" at best. Don't see any high-impact journals publishing this nonsense.

    Old news. Germans have known this for 500 years. It is liquid bread.

    Besides 500 years ago it was safer than drinking the water.

    Try 5 THOUSAND years ago. With the ancient Egyptians. Beer was a staple of the workers on the great temples and monuments. Along with fish, since the River Nile was never very far away.

    The drinking water was visibly dirty, often gritty. The Egyptians had developed ways of using multiple stages of sediment settling, to remove the heavier particles. But they also knew drinking water could be unhealthy. Today we understand it's due to parasites and bacteria, not discovered in ancient times. But they did realize from observation that an alcoholic beverage could be less likely to give them diseases. As did many early civilizations.

    Plus they assumed beer in particular was nutritional, because of the grains that go into it. As you said, "liquid bread", at least in the minds of the Egyptans. Now whether modern beer is beneficial in other ways I'm sure will be debated. But I thought this article might be of interest here.

    This study is baseless bullshit. Beer and any other alcoholic beverage is a toxic liquid junk food. Beer tastes horrible and it makes a person fat and gives them severe gas. I dont touch this shit because I care about what I put into my body.
