Stay healthy: Drink Guinness


Flavenoids in Guinness combat fatty deposits in arteries. Note, however that the beer was consumed by being “fed … via tubes directly into their stomachs.”

On the other hand, a friend of mine points out, “I thought a tube leading directly to the stomach was also called the esophagus. That’s my Guinness delivery system.”

    In college, I drank a lot of Guinness fed, via tubes, directly into my stomach — it didn’t seem to combat fatty anything…

    I saw that on friday – last night I heard on the news that we (in the uk) are suffering from an increase in mouth cancer through smoking and drinking too much !

  3. Rock on! Remember the slogan, "Guinness is Good For You!"

    It’s a little known fact that Guinness is (almost) capable of sustaining human life on its own – all the nutrients you need to maintain life can be found in Guinness, supplemented with a pint of milk and half an orange daily.

    The downside (depending on your worldview) is that you need to drink 48 pints of Guinness a day. However, once you’ve worked in a bar in Kilburn you know that this is easily possible…
