Drink Beer and Fight Cancer

It might sound too good to be true, but one day we may all be drinking beer to fight cancer.

"Researchers in Germany say that a cancer-fighting substance found in hops could be enhanced to brew a special anti-cancer beer."

Your thoughts?

Drinking hops could cause cancer and it still wouldn't stop me.

I love Germany...they really know how to run a healthcare system! Their government funds research on herbs and plants and they are prescribed by physicians as a part of their mainstream medicine, rather than "alternative". Not terribly surprised - hops has been used for centuries to treat anxiety and insomnia (that's true!). It is also a diuretic (as if you didn't already know). Here's to your health!
