Dive in! The water's lovely!
Hot news, circa 2003.
It's still good news.
How did I miss the date?
I suppose it doesn't hurt to remind people of this study on a Friday afternoon.
i never heard of this so thanks for bringing it up.
interesting idea and all that. wonder if they ever tested it further.
They used to serve Guinness in hospitals in Ireland, and also when you donated blood, because it's full of iron. I wonder if they knew about any other good properties it has!?
Why does it not surprise me that this research was done in Wisconsin?
It is surprising that they did not find benefits for Miller products, and that somehow bratwurst and cheese are not included...
Did they ask the dogs in the study which ones they preferred?
I have personally, and I feel a bit healthier and energetic than before.
As if I needed another excuse! Yup powerdave I remember those days well. Have they stopped that practice?
So if Guinness is good for you and lager isn't, are there any health benefits from a nice pale ale?
Of course there is!
Do you really have to ask?
It was more a rhetorical question really, but it's good to know that I'm only doing myself good as I prepare to pour my second pint of the evening.
It's 20 to 10 and you're only pouring your second pint?
Mini Jaffa Cake better be the reason for this!!!
You crazy brits!!
When Irish fest comes to indy next weekend, I'll be sure to drink that all night...for health reasons, you know?
I had been drinking Okcim (about a 6 pack a year, not a beer person) because I wanted to give the country where 1/2 my ancestors came from (Poland) a helping hand. But their homophobia so disturbs me, I am switching back to Guiness, which is my favorite beer anyway. Besides, Ireland refused to let one of our bombers land there, which is a plus in my book. And another 1/4 of my ancestors did live in Ireland for a few centuries, they were just that "other" kind of Irish - Scotch-Irish or Ulster Scot. So I guess I am still kind of sorta helping out the land of my ancestors.
Course the LAST thing I want to do is live to be an impoverished, old woman on a hot, chaotic planet, so must find another health vice to counteract the benefits of this brew.
p.s. There is a Guiness and Oyster festival in Chicago this weekend!
Perhaps soon to be overtaken by Nigeria.
I love Nigerian Guinness, almost a different drink altogether and far stronger. Don't see it much around where I live in London, though.
I checked to see how ones says "Brilliant" in Nigeria.
"Brilliant" - since the official language is English. D'oH
Now here's a question. Do these health benefits apply to Beamish and Murphy's as well? What about O'Hara's?
*contemplates the Dogfish Head World Wide Stout downstairs*
Hmm, 372 calories in 12 oz. vs. 120-something in 11.2 oz. of Guinness Draught... Interesting trade-off. Nearly 5 times the alcohol content, but only about 3 times more calories!
Good excuse for a piss up this friday...
Guinness is good for you
Well Shane MacGowen is still alive so there must be something in it.
And don't forget the claim that you can get all the nutrients you need from 57 pints of Guinness, 2 pints of orange juice and a pint of milk a day.
I swear I saw this in the New Scientist, but a bit of searching on t'internet didn't come up with anything other than people swearing they saw it in the New Scientist, so I've reluctantly relegated this to the status of urban myth
Nigerian Guinness is great. In my previous job, my manager was from Nigeria, and he would bring me back a load everytime he went home. Good stuff.
Heh. That reminds me of the poster of the Guiness Tucan with the "Guiness is good for you!" tagline. I would look at the poster, then at my expanding wasitline in defiance.
