Excuse to drink beer: Dutch researchers believe they have proved that beer in moderation is better for men than red wine or other alcoholic beverages when it comes to preventing heart disease or even cancer.
The Dutch Nutrition and Food Research Institute studied 111 men and concluded that beer contains vitamin B6, which prevents the build up the chemical homocysteine, believed to be one of factors in heart disease. Wine and spirits did not have this effect to the same extent, they said.
