I just read that all beer had a tendency to dilate arteries and would thus possibly be a preventative for that reason alone. They recommended just two a day.
I had heard "old timers", which I am now one, tout the benefits of dark beer. We used to get it here just in the spring. I never had enough to develop a taste for it though now I think it was a less refined taste than Guiness.
I am glad that medicine seems to be moving in the right direction.
Dear Lord, lest I continue in my complacent ways, help me to remember that someone died for me today. And if there be war, help me to remember to ask and to answer "am I worth dying for?" - Eleanor Roosevelt
The ultimate result of shielding men from the effects of folly is to fill the world with fools. -- Herbert Spencer, English Philosopher (1820-1903)
