Drink to heart health

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.

Science: Doing it is key to heart health

If you want to keep your heart healthy, you should be having sex more often, according to researchers.

Prospective cardiologist Johannes Hinrich von Borste has reviewed the data, and found that the having of the sex helps lower blood pressure. In part, because it’s a workout, but also because of the chemicals your brain releases. Von Borste also recommends eating raw garlic daily to keep your heart healthy, but doesn’t mention how you’re supposed to be knocking boots more if you have the garlic burps.
