Beer Protects Us From Alzheimers and Parkinsons!

Chinese scientists recently released a study suggesting that Xanthohumol (Xn), a compound found in hops, protects the brain against the damage caused by Alzheimer's Disease and Parkinson's Disease. Xn is known to be an antioxidant and protects us from heart disease and cancer. The scientists suggest that to obtain the best benefits, we should drink organic beer with no added alcohol (?) in moderation.

I wonder if eating hops would provide the same protection? Graham Kerr, in his Swiftly Seasoned cookbook used hops in a German spice blend.
