“TORONTO – Beer, a health food? That’s what some Canadian researchers report. A study from the University of Western Ontario finds a brewski is good for you. The researchers say beer has antioxidant boosters that could help fight cancer, heart disease and diabetes.But the key is moderation. The researchers found three beers would have the opposite effect.The study was funded by beer makers Guinness and Labatt. But the university says the financial support had no influence on the outcome.”
Maybe it is my finely tuned bullshit detector, but I don’t buy the argument that money played no part in this research.
