Beer is Good for You! Scientists Say a Pint a Day is Good for Your Heart

Fancy a pint? With news in that a pint of beer is good for heart health, you can now raise a glass guilt-free – beer is officially back on the menu!

Nothing tastes better on a warm summer's day
than a freshly poured, frothy pint of beer. But as one of the most
calorific options to go for, we usually steer clear of the fizzy golden
nectar. Up until now at least.

If you have a
penchant for a pint or two, then you'll be pleased to know that new
research has revealed that drinking a glass of beer a day is actually
good for your heart

Scientists
from the Mediterranean Neurological Institute in Italy claimed that
drinking moderate amounts of beer could reduce risk of heart disease by up to 25 per cent.

The
team reviewed more than 150 comprehensive studies, concluding that
drinking up to two 1.4 pints of beer a day for men, and one 1.4 pint for
women, could have a beneficial effect on heart health. 

It was
also noted in the studies that drinking beer would not increase the
chances of developing other illnesses including dementia and cancer. 

Writing in the journal Nutrition, Metabolism & Cardiovascular Disease,
scientists wrote: 'Unless they are at high risk for alcohol-related
cancers of alcohol dependency, there is no reason to discourage healthy
adults who are already light or moderate beer consumers from
continuing.


'Data reported in this document show evidence for no harm of moderate
beer consumption for major chronic conditions and some benefit against
cardiovascular disease.'

Sounds pretty good to us! Of course we're not saying to guzzle pints in their plenty — everything in moderation of course — but if an odd beer now and again is proven to be good for our hearts, then who are we to argue?
