"What's more, 'The antioxidants in beer are better at reacting with toxic-free radicals than the ones in antioxidant vitamins pills." proof that beer is healthy (4) And perhaps the most important piece of health information, discovered through personal experience as opposed to an article in Men's Health: blowing off a week of steam with three great friends is always really good for you.
