Due to recent health concerns, I am amending my Lentil sacrifices to permit red wine only. And maybe some wimmins, but only on weekends.
Your fortitude is astounding.
That works for me.Pokey, going for lunchbeers today
I need some lunch red wine.
That's just gay
LCK is not here yet. She's putting our lunchbeers in jeopardy!
SAVE THE LUNCHBEERS!
All she has to do is beat our boss in. There's still a chance.
That's just gay I HAVE HIGH CHOLESTEROL, CARLHUNGUS.
Does beer have cholesterol?
Does beer have cholesterol? No, but it doesn't help the same way red wine does.
LUNCHBEEERS ARE RUINED!
So I was a half-hour late. I can still have lunchbeers!LCK
We seem to have two conflicting statements posted at the same time.
Pokey always underestimates me.
I'm not eating whatever is giving off that nasty stench in the conference room.Plus? I can't smoke in there!
Dutch researchers in 2000 offered evidence to counter the widely held belief that red wine was better for the heart than beer. The Dutch study, led by Dr. Henk Hendriks of the TNO Nutrition and Food Research Institute, studied 11 healthy men who drank four glasses of either beer, red wine, spirits or water with dinner for three months. They switched beverages every three weeks. Despite the small number of subjects in the study, the results were striking.The men showed a 30 percent increase in vitamin B6 in their blood plasma after three weeks on beer. Drinkers of red wine and Dutch gin received only one-half the increase in the vitamin. B6 prevents the body from building up high levels of homocysteine, a chemical linked to an increased risk of heart disease. Homocysteine levels did not increase in the beer drinkers, but rose for those who drank wine or spiritsA somewhat similar study in Denmark also addressed the "red wine v. beer is better for your heart" debate. The Danish Brewers Association reported that beer works as well as wine in preventing heart disease. "It cannot be proved that there is any health advantage to drinking red wine, for example, rather than beer," according to the study by the Institute of Epidemiology and Social Medicine at the University of Muenster. "Studies indicate that light to moderate alcohol consumption from beer, wine or spirits is associated with a reduction in all-cause mortality, owing primarily to a decreased risk of coronary heart disease."
Do you believe that beer is as effective as red wine?
At least as. Maybe more, depending on the type of beer.I firmly believe unfiltered unpasteurized bottle conditioned beer is way better for you than red wine. I drink quite a bit of that.Oh, and hops prevent cancer.
Oh, and hops prevent cancer. Uh-huh, while they cause plant estrogen induced impotence. No thanks.I'm going to go with the French on this one. They have history on their side.

Well, i'm a hop head. And i happen to know i'm not impotent.So, whatever.Besides if it just takes a really, really long time for the impotence to develop, there's always Viagra. And i will have been getting the cancer-preventing benefits of hops all those years. It's win-win.

Theoretically, all the beer I drink should counteract all the cigarettes I smoke and I'll live forever.
Unfortunately for you, one must consume either reasonable amounts of very highly hopped beer (like me) or insane amounts of lightly hopped beer (maybe like you) to get enough of the cancer-fighting compound.The scientists say it would take 17 beers a day (of a standard American lager) to realize any cancer-fighting benefits. But many of the beers i drink are more than 17 times as hoppy as American lagers, so i figure i'm in pretty good shape.
