Pint of beer a day keeps the doctor away: It’s well known that red wine can benefit your heart but a new study announced last week touts the health benefits of beer.

Published in the European Journal of Epidemiology, the study is an analysis of 16 studies involving more than 200,000 participants. Researchers found that people who
drank about a pint of beer a day had a 31% reduced risk of heart disease. For those who consumed more alcohol, either beer, wine, or liquor, their risk “surged,” noted MyHealthNewsDaily.
