Stay healthy: Drink beer!

It’s entirely possible I’ve talked about the health effects of beer in the past on this website, but that’s only because I speak so much about beer it’s kind of difficult to keep track of what topics I’ve covered. Plus, I have a good excuse for having a bad memory: I drink a lot of beer.

But, contrary to popular belief, the health impact of beer isn’t all bad! In fact, there are some positive health benefits which I, of course, outweigh the negatives.

As a huge fan of porters, oatmeal stouts, milk stouts, dry Irish stous, Russian imperial stouts, and basically any other form of dark beer, I am proud and excited to tell you that, according to this article, “dark beers tend to have the most antioxidants, which help reverse cellular damage that occurs naturally in the body. A recent study published in the Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture has also found that dark beer has higher iron content compared to lighter beers.”

And for you IPA-loving hopheads out there: “Hops contain polyphenols, which help lower cholesterol, fight cancer and kill viruses.”

I was going to go to the gym and eat a balanced meal, but screw it; I’m gonna go grab a beer.
