I wonder how you get a job as a lab rat in a study like this?

This is an interesting study that seems to show something in the makeup of the beer that is promoting health. The trend has actually been the opposite. The first studies out on alcohol and health introduced the French Paradox, where you could eat a high fat diet and yet maintain a low population of heart disease. Initially it was thought that something in the red wine caused the improved health, but as time has gone on, more and more researchers are saying that it is simply the alcohol consumption that is the real culprit. Wine had no real benefits over beer, or any other type of alcohol. The real problems come in with excess on any of these drinks. The bad begins to outweigh the good, but in any case, I guess Guinness really is good for you!
