Dutch scientist confirms a beer a day “would be very good for you” and suggests drinking such protects against insomnia, dementia and obesity
Many of The Sun’s headlines are to be taken with a pinch of salt, but this morning’s claiming “a beer a day can help you live longer” is actually supported by science.
Backing up a previous study, first reported on by Sam Dangremond in Town & Country and shared in The Steeple Times in February 2018, that suggested “drinking alcohol could be the key to living past 90,” Professor Eric Claassen, a gut bacteria expert at Amsterdam University said: “In high concentrations, alcohol is bad for the gut, but if you drink just one [strong Belgian example such as Hoegaarden] every day it would be very good for you.”
With some bottled brews containing up to 50 million probiotic or “good” bacteria, it seems beer is the way forward. We join those saying “cheers” to that.
