Move over, red wine. Looks like beer has some health benefits too. A recent Italian study found that moderate beer consumption decreases your risk of heart disease by 31 percent, just as much as moderate wine consumption. What counts as moderate beer consumption? The researchers suggest a daily dose of slightly more than an English pint (20 ounces, which is four ounces bigger than an American pint) containing five percent alcohol. Cheers!
