Bottoms Up! Beer is healthier than wine

Posted June 27, 2006 by Evan Tishuk

Charles Bamforth is the "Anheuser-Busch endowed professor" at UC Davis and a hero to beer aficionados everywhere. He recently explained that beer "contains valuable B vitamins, such as B12, folic acid and niacin, as well as antioxidants, such as polyphenols and ferulic acid" That's good enough for me. I'm replacing my morning vitamins and oatmeal with a tall glass of beer and... another tall glass of beer.

By adhering to a strict diet of cheap beer and coffee, I fully expect to be certifiably invincible.

It's a shame that I'll never be able to retire though.

Yeah, I should really replace that second pint of beer with a Caucasian.

Sheeit.. Ireland already knew this.

In England, post-operative patients used to be given Guinness, as were blood donors, because of its high iron content. This practice continues in Ireland.

Pregnant women and nursing mothers were at one stage advised to drink Guinness - the present advice is against this.
