Thumbs up Beer is Supposed to be Good for You Now.

I saw on the news this morning, that beer is supposed to be good for you now. Like coffee, chocolate and wine, it's supposed to help stimulate the heart and other organs.

But it must be consumed in moderation without overdoing it. At least two drinks a day, maybe.

This is actually old news. All alcohol is supposed to be good for you in moderation.

I am of the opinion that most things have beneficial things in them. The key is to not overdo it on anything.

I've always believed that beer was good for you...I guess that's the German in me.
There's this big thing in the US now about not letting nursing mothers drink, but when I had my babies, the doctors told me that beer made milk. I don't believe I ever had over 2-3, though...a new mother is always worn out, and once the baby was asleep, I usually was too.
I have a bi-polar friend who is anorexic and alcoholic. For a while, I got her to quit the hard liquor and stick with beer, and she actually started eating and gaining weight.

Constance, when my wife was nursing the doctor did not tell her she could not drink. He actually even suggested it if the baby was having trouble sleeping.

My doctor told me to have a least one beer a day....
Kind of funny since I was 19.

A little elderly couple that lived next door to me - 30 years ago kept a little refrigerator in their bedroom with beer - doctors orders - drink 1 or 2 a day to help flush his kidneys! lol

There really is no "new" what's good for you what's bad for you - maybe a FEW things but not really anything new new new. The thing that I am amazed that changes pretty often is how to put a baby down to sleep - on the back - on the stomach - on the side with padding so it won't turn over either way.

Kitchenelf, everyone knows that the correct way to put the baby down to sleep is left hand green, right leg red.
