Drinking Beer is healthy and good for your body

Contrary to the popular perception, health experts said beer has lots of health and lifestyle benefits when consumed moderately. They said this at the first Beer and Health Symposium, an initiative of Nigerian Breweries Plc aimed at changing what the company considers as a faulty public perception towards the product.

Speaking at the event held in Lagos on Tuesday, Professor Bankole Omotosho of the University of Stellenbosch, South Africa, said beer could prevent diabetes; reduce stomach ulcer and cholesterol level when consumed moderately.

Omotoso regretted that religion and wrong perception had prevented many people from benefiting from the medical value in beer consumption, adding, "many people have never looked at beer beyond alcohol." The university Don, however, warned against its abuse, advising men to restrict themselves to one to three bottles. The female folks due to their slower alcohol absorption rate, he said, should take less quantity.

Of responsible beer consumption, he continued, "To drink moderately is to drink within the limit set by your health, society and obligations to family and friends. Nobody wants to be a nuisance to the society."
