Guinness IS Good For You

Guinness Is Good For YouWe’ve seen the adverts, with the slogan “Guinness Is Good For You.” Well, that may be true after all, according to researchers.

It’s been found that a pint of Guinness a day can help prevent heart clots that raise the risk of heart attacks.

However, drinking lager does not have the same benefits as the black stuff, experts from the University of Wisconsin told a conference.

Guinness were told to stop using the slogan decades ago – and the firm still makes no health claims for the drink.
The Wisconsin team tested the health-giving properties of stout against lager by giving it to dogs who had narrowed arteries similar to those in heart disease.
They found that those given the Guinness had reduced clotting activity in their blood, but not those given lager.

There’ll be celebrations in Ireland tonight, I’m sure!
