"Beer, a drink and a healthy diet healthy composition of thousands of years is not only good to drink, but moderate consumption may fit perfectly (and may even bring benefits) in a healthy diet and adult style. Hundreds of types beer, which are produced throughout Europe share the same beneficial effect associated with alcohol content and the potential benefits from what is produced beer, "was the conclusion of experts from several European countries in the symposium" Beer and Health "held in Brussels ..
