Beer May Prevent Prostate Cancer

June 13, 2006 at 2:06 am 2 comments

Good excuse news for those of you who possess a prostate.  Researchers at Oregon State University have discovered that hops contain a compound that may inhibit prostate cancer.  Of course, you would have to drink 17 beers a day to achieve any potential benefits.  But, as my grandmother used to  say, if you don't have your health, you don't have anything.

The researchers also  noted that tomatoes contain an ingredient that could prevent prostate cancer.

You know what that means.  Beer and pizza are good for you!

Beer ingredient may fight prostate cancer.

    I’m glad I don’t possess a prostrate. I hate hearing, “Put your feet in the stirrups and slide to the end of the table.” I would hate hearing, “Turn your head and cough,” even more.
