Move Over Wine Drinkers, 10 Health Benefits of Beer

You heard me right. A beer a day might keep that pesky doctor away (and living in Quebec you will need all the help you need).

10. Longer Life

In a 2005 review of 50 studies, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) reported that moderate drinkers live longer. The USDA also estimates that moderate drinking prevents about 26,000 deaths a year, due to lower rates of heart disease, stroke, and diabetes.

These benefits appear to apply in other countries as well, with an earlier study reporting that, “if European beer drinkers stopped imbibing, there would be a decrease in life expectancy of two years—and much unhappiness.”

I suppose the rule of thumb is moderation, but it looks like there might be many advantages to a beer or two a day. If you needed more proof to keep drinking, now you have it.

Cheers to your health!
