Beer Prevents Hypertension

A study by the Association of the Spanish Society of Hypertension-Spanish League to Fight Arterial Hypertension and the Beer and Health Information Center (whew!), has discovered that beer in moderation, in addition with the Mediterranean diet, can help prevent hypertension. For women that's 1-2 beers a day. For men that's 2-3 beers a day.

Turns out, the low sodium and high potassium of beer is healthy, and can help increase good cholesterol, especially in women.
