|A POT BELLY?
Professor Dr. Joseph Keul of the Department of
Rehabilitative and Preventive Sports Medicine, University Clinic of Freiburg,
Germany wrote, that "the scientific findings did away with a number of
prejudices" related to beer consumption. Apparently, the habit of eating
very fatty food combined with high beer consumption a century ago lead
to the belief that beer causes overweight body.
|The Professor also emphasized that "when consuming alcohol [at moderate level], the content of arterial sclerosis-promoting cholesterol decreases at the same time. These changes occur particularly in people who exercise in moderation and lead a sensible life. Moderate beer consumption can thus replace Aspirin as a prophylaxis against myocardial infarction [heart attack]".|
