Description
Learn how to drink alcohol safely for maximum health benefits. A board-certified physician provides the latest scientific evidence that people who regularly consume a small amount of alcohol, namely beer, live longer compared to those who booze too much, don't drink at all, or drink occasionally. The author coins the term "therapeutic alcohol dose" and shows how drinking small doses of beer can reduce the risk of coronary heart disease, osteoporosis, gallstone, kidney stone, dementia, and cataracts. Readers will learn about medicinal properties of various types and varieties of beer including ale, cask ale, stout, porter, draft, dark, light, filtered, unfiltered, pasteurized, unpasteurized, gluten-free and non-alcoholic.
