"Beer Snobs" May Live Longer

Here is an excerpt from the article:

"What Stevens and others are discovering is that xanthohumol has several unique effects. Along with inhibiting tumor growth and other enzymes that activate cancer cells, it also helps the body make unhealthy compounds more water-soluble, so they can be excreted. "

and another:

Still, no one knows how much beer is needed to reap the benefits. Mice studies show that the compound is metabolized quickly by the body, so it's hard to get a large amount in the body at one time, Stevens said. (KH: Not hard, just drink more)

"It clearly has some interesting chemo-preventive properties, and the only way people are getting any of it right now is through beer consumption," he said.

The best part is that only the really good hoppy beers have this chemical - so put that Budweiser down.

KH - getting progressively thirstier
