Beer has antioxidant boosters that could help fight cancer, heart disease and diabetes
Beer, a health food? That's what some Canadian researchers report. A study from the University of Western Ontario finds a brew could be good for you. The researchers say beer has antioxidant boosters that could help fight cancer, heart disease and diabetes. But the key is moderation. The researchers found three beers would have the opposite effect, reports the News Day. According to Canada the study found that one bottle of beer led to a beneficial increase in antioxidants but three bottles had the opposite effect, making the blood "pro-oxidant" and increasing the risks of many aging diseases. The research was sponsored by beermakers Guinness and Labatt "unconditionally," Trevithick said. "They said whatever you find you're free to publish. So we're finding this deleterious effect from three drinks, and they haven't said anything about it at all." The study will be published in December in the journal Nonlinearity in Biology, Toxicology and Medicine. The researchers compared the effects of red wine, beer, stout (Guinness) and non-alcoholic stout, studying antioxidant levels in the blood of subjects at various intervals after consuming the drinks. Previous research has found that moderate consumption of alcohol can be good for you because it increases levels of HDL, or good cholesterol. But Trevithick's study focused on the effect of polyphenols, natural plant substances also found in grapes.
