A compound found in hops helps younger mice improve their memory but had no effect on older animals.
I love these types of articles.
Whenever someone says wine is healthy, people go out and drink it by the bottles. Same with beer, when we get a study which ‘proves’ the benefits of beer, guts immediately increase in girth as livers get inflamed with the fatty tissue of alcohol and decay.
Let’s keep this in perspective, as the story goes on to say:
The researchers point out that they gave the mice huge quantities of xanthohumol as dietary supplements and caution people shouldn’t start drinking lots of beer to improve their memories.
“A human would have to drink 2000 liters of beer a day to reach the xanthohumol levels we used in this research,” warned Magnussun.
While I know some people who may be able to ingest 2000 liters of beer a day, this headline is very misleading (As most are.) Beer is not healthy.. does it have some good effects now and then? Yes.. But if you drink on a constant basis every day of your life, your living start to look like Freddy Krueger and you will not live very long. ..
