Have a pint, it's good for you
It's the news every man has been waiting for - and it gets better. Spanish researchers believe moderate consumption of beer can even help people lose weight.
The cause of the infamous British beer belly is lack of exercise, excessive consumption of high fat foods and drinking beer to excess, they said.
Barcelona-based doctors Ramon Estruch and Rosa Lamuela tested 1,249 men and women over 57 years old.
They found those who accompanied a Mediterranean diet with up to a pint of beer ‘not only did not put on weight, but in some cases even lost weight.’
Beer contains folic acid, vitamins, iron and calcium, which their study said provide a ‘protective’ effect on the cardiovascular system.
Those who regularly drank moderate amounts of beer were less likely to suffer from diabetes and high blood pressure, and had a lower body fat content.
Dr Estruch said Spanish beer drinkers did not resemble their British counterparts who ‘drink large quantities, almost without moving from one spot, while eating fried chips and sausages.’
