Can Beer be Good for You?

We have all always heard of the benefits of drinking a glass of wine a night. But now with the popularization of cart bears and local brews it becoming highly accepted that beer has some of the same effects. With heart increasing it’s been noted that people who have one (one or two for men and one for women)  of these frosty beverages had low risks. Below is a list of other health reason to have beer.

Heart Health – Men with healthy lifestyles, those who consumed moderate amounts of alcohol had a 40 to 60% reduced risk of heart attack compared with heart healthy men who abstained.
Stroke – Beyond helping you get heart healthy, moderate drinking also may help prevent the formation of blood clots that can block arteries in the heart, neck and brain.
Hypertension – A link between hypertensive men drinking moderate amounts of alcohol and a lower risk of fatal and non-fatal heart attacks.
Diabetes – Studies have shown that people with diabetes who drink moderately may be able to reduce their risk of coronary heart disease, their biggest killer.
Cognitive Function – Moderate drinking may Be associated with better cognitive function in women. Adults over 65 who consume between one and six alcoholic beverages each week have a lower risk of dementia than non-drinkers and heavier drinkers.
 Bones – Studies have shown that beer may play a role in preventing bone loss and rebuilding bone mass in men and young women
Staying Alive – The lowest risk of death appears to occur when people consume one to two drinks per day, likely a result of the protective effects against coronary heart disease and stroke.
Feeling Healthier – The higher the consumption of total alcohol, researchers found, the lower the levels of subjective poor health.

About veggiescruff

You may be wondering what the hell VeggieScruff means? Well my last name is Turnipseed that leads to the nickname Veggie, which I’ve had for years. The scruff part didn’t come till years later with I started to develop an admiration for beards and guys with them. I also grew a love for beer and as the years passed I began experimenting and trying new different beers. But the one thing that has always been present in my life was music, ever since I was a kid. Most of my friends even refer to me as a music-snob, I think it’s meant to enduring or at least that how I’m taking it. So basically a bearded guy will always gets my attention. Then if said bearded guy were drinking a microbrew or craft beer then I’d be intrigued. But if said dude with beer was listening to really awesome music… well then you’d be reading this blog, that or be on the best date ever. So feel free to follow along or leave, the title only consists of just some of my main interest but I’m also a Printmaker and Designer so some of those topics will be scattered about and probably a few random rants too. My posts may not be relevant or even safe for work. But I will always try to be honest, entertaining and even hopefully informative from time to time, if I feel like it.
