A recent article discussed the health of drinking a glass of wine compared to beer. I think common conception, including my own, has been that wine is “healthier.” Lots of people are counting calories so they may avoid beer when typically a light beer has roughly the same calorie count as a glass of wine. I have also mainly just heard how wine is good for the heart but never head of anything on beer.
An article called “Drinking a glass of wine or beer,” found in Parade on November 11, first mentions that in general it has been found that moderate consumption of alcohol can be beneficial to your health. Some of the benefits the article lists are: heart disease, cholesterol levels, and cognitive function.
In regards to additional benefits though, beer provides the most :D
Wine contains antioxidant resveratrol which apparently is a controversial issue but seems to have positive effects on your health. Before reading this article I had never heard of resveratrol so I can’t say much but after briefly looking into it, it seems to be inconclusive.
Regardless, in the article it stated that more than a glass or two a day would need to be consumed to get enough of this antioxidant for it to be beneficial.
On the other hand, compared to wine, beer contains more B vitamins and silicon which is associated with better bone health. The article also mentioned that “moderate beer consumption seems to lower the risk of kidney stones in men.”
Celebrate! Apparently, my beer consumption hobby is giving me health benefits ;)
Note: the article listed “moderate consumption” several times :D
So I am totally a twilight fan, read all the books and saw all the movies in theater…but this video is hilarious! If you are looking for a laugh, watch the video below! Even if you haven’t seen twilight you will enjoy this :)
