Sounds like it would also eventually stave off a functional liver.

Tokyo: Consuming large quantities of a key ingredient in beer can protect against winter sniffles and even some serious illnesses in small children, a Japanese brewery said citing a scientific study.

A chemical compound in hops, the plant brewers use to give beer its bitter taste, provides an effective guard against a virus that can cause severe forms of pneumonia and bronchitis in youngsters, Sapporo Breweries said.


I don't know what's dumber - that people are paying attention to a BREWERY claiming that their beer cures diseases, or that Sapporo Brewers is suggesting giving children and infants beer as a remedy for respiratory syncytial.

So the extra-special-ultra-hyper-bitter brews made by bottling hops and then briefly showing the bottle to a handful of barley are good for something.

OTOH, if you gave the little mobile Petri dishes 30 beers a day they'd be in no shape to share their germs.

So, its the bitter part of the hops... I doubt it would make a good tea. But maybe you should just be drinking tea anyways. I bet the anti-angiogenesis properties of Earl Grey would do you better in the long run than fighting off a virus this year.

All the real big drinkers Ive known in life have kidney problems well before any liver problems manifest. I had to bow out of real drinking at the tender age of ~24 because of the kidneys, as well as my younger brother around the same age (drunks from a family full of drunks). My buddy is even a little younger and on the waiting list for a transplant, he walks around with a shiatbag on his hip. I also have another friend who complains of kidney pangs when he gets real wasted, and "takes it easy" until it goes away.

I have no medical experience, but from a lifetime of cohabitation with drunks, I'm more inclined to believe serious liver problems develop later in the life of more mild* drinkers.

/Mild, as opposed to people who buy vodka daily by the half gallon

30 beers a day? Sure. I'll have to cut my consumption quite a bit, but I think it's manageable.

Once you've graduated and aren't sitting in classes with dozens of people every day, your chances of getting sick go way down. I get maybe one cold per year.

The point is, they haven't yet produced the compound as a pill or supplement, so in the meantime, those of us with a mature attitude to our health maintenance have only option .......

anyway why is this news - Dave Barry has always recommended the intake of chilled medicinal liquids (which is the medical name for beer) for treating colds, flu, boredom etc. (And because of the recognized vectors for transmission of viruses, he also suggested removing all doorknobs, and sending your kids to New Zealand)

Well, Sapporo is the name of a city so it's likely that both the brewery and the university were named after the city.
