Not that you needed another reason to drink, but here’s another study that said it’s good for you.
According to a Penn State study of 80,000 adults, a beer a day could keep the cardiologist away. Men who had one to two drinks a day, and women who had one daily, generally had a slower natural decline in “good” cholesterol, also known as high-density lipoprotein. That means a lower risk of cardiovascular disease or stroke. Researchers noted that the benefits of drinking different forms of alcohol each had benefits, but beer was the best.
These benefits didn’t apply to drinking higher amounts of alcohol, but you’ve stopped reading by now anyway.
