A beer a day keeps the doctors away Friday 16th June 2017 | Grace Health Beer drink We have all heard how drinking a glass of red wine a day is thought to have lots of health benefits (probably because when you are slightly tipsy you stop caring about any health problems). But people at Pennsylvania State University have discovered that a glass of beer a day can actually help people live longer too! As well as preventing kidney stones and lowering the risk of heart attacks, one glass of beer a day is suggested to strengthen bones and even reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s. However, other experts warn that more than one or two beers a day can increase the risk of these health issues, so just make sure to get the balance right. Who needs a better excuse to go down to the local? Bottoms up!
