AND IF THEY'RE WRONG, WHO CARES?:

Guinness 'may be good for you' after all (Bonnie Malkin, 11/09/2007, Daily Telegraph)

The old slogan “Guinness is Good For You” may actually be true, according to new medical research that suggests the stout may help prevent heart attacks.

University researchers in the US claim that drinking a pint of the black stuff each day may be as effective in preventing heart attacks as an aspirin because it can reduce heart clots. [...]

The research concluded that the “antioxidant compounds” found in Guinness are similar to those found in certain fruits and vegetables, making the stout work as well as aspirin in the prevention of heart clots.

The researchers said that the most benefit they saw was from taking 24 fluid ounces of Guinness - just over a pint - at meal times.
