The Healthy Way to Drink… Drink Beer, That Is

Red wine gets all the press, what with its anti-aging miracle compound. But what about that poor sod, the beer drinker? He’s left out in the cold to get a pot belly and enormous intestinal gas.

“It’s not going to prevent you from getting a beer gut from drinking too much beer, or from getting cirrhosis of the liver,” says Taylor Stevenson, one of six undergraduates working on the project. “But people are already drinking beer, so why not make the activity a little healthier?”

Mmmmm. cirrhosis.
