    Ah, beer – the sacred golden nectar of the gods, or at least the preferred drink of tailgaters and party-goers alike. And perhaps now the coveted drink of health-conscious adults. No longer should you hesitate when you want to reach out for a frosty cold beer because according to a scientific research, beer is your comrade in the fight against cancer. An antioxidant found in hops (a plant used to add depth of flavor to beer), called xanthohumol, has been shown to inhibit the growth of cancerous cells and may also slow tumor growth. Researchers from Oregon State University were the first to claim the cancer-fighting properties of xanthohumol more than a decade ago, but the meaning behind it is catching on – could beer be the next health food? The benefit of beer is old news, according to Thomas Jefferson who once said, “Beer, if drank in moderation, softens the temper, cheers the spirit, and promotes health.” And who better to support this notion than the beer-loving country of Germany, who published an entire research journal on the health benefits of xanthohumol? How much beer do you need to drink to get the cancer-fighting benefits? Researchers are not quite sure yet and warn that most beers do not contain high enough levels of xanthohumol to start recommending beer for the prevention of cancer. But hey, if you’re going to have a pint of your favorite beer anyway, make it an India Pale Ale (IPA), which has the most hops.

  22. it can't be a significant amount at all. the hops in beer has also been shown to raise estrogen levels in men... helllooooo man t1ts

  23. Great example of a journalist messing up good research.

    Beer may help fight some forms of cancer because it has xanthohumol in it, but I hope none of you take that too seriously and use this as an excuse to drink all the time. There are other very serious issues associated with drinking beer.

    The take away from this should be: do more research to see if xanthohumol supplementation is beneficial, or something to that extent. Not, drink more beer

    You know some there are fat drunks somewhere reading this thinking this is so cool that they now have to celebrate by doing more drinking. I do love my beer on football Sunday's though, it's almost necessary now that the 49ers are botton dwellers.
