Good news story about beer
Today’s edition of The Sun newspaper carries a positive story about beer.
Covering the European Beer & Health Symposium in Brussels, the article by the paper’s health reporter Nick McDermott, states ‘pints cut early death AND keep you slim, say studies’. The piece points out that studies found moderate consumption of beer reduces the risk of an early death by 15 per cent compared to non-drinkers, and slashes the chance of a heart attack by a third.
After years of watching wine take the high ground on health benefits linked to moderate consumption, it’s good to see recognised by a national newspaper.
The European Beer & Health Symposium is held in Brussels every second or third year, and focuses on the latest research on the relationship between moderate beer consumption and health. The Sun correspondent travelled to the symposium with Steve Livens of the British Beer & Pub Association.
