    Brad, drink it up!

    Brad, now you have a medical reason to get loaded!

    17 beers a day keep prostate cancer away
    Theoretically, anyway, especially when taken with pizza with tomato sauce
    Q & A Library
    PORTLAND, Ore. - For many men, a finding by Oregon researchers sounds too good to be true: An ingredient in beer seems to help prevent prostate cancer, at least in lab experiments.

    The trouble is you'd theoretically have to drink about 17 beers a day for any potential benefit. And no one's advising that.

    Researchers at Oregon State University say that the compound xanthohumol, found in hops, inhibits a protein in the cells along the surface of the prostate gland. The protein acts like a switch that turns on a variety cancers, including prostate cancer.

    Dr. Richard N. Atkins, CEO of the National Prostate Cancer Coalition, said the experiments are encouraging and "perhaps men could take it in pill form someday."

    He noted that lycopene, an ingredient in tomatoes, and thus also in tomato sauce, has previously been linked to prostate cancer prevention.

    "It's every man's dream to hear that beer and pizza can prevent cancer," he said. "However, the 17 beers and four large pizzas needed to get enough xanthohumol and lycopene to help prevent prostate cancer is unfortunately not advised."

    Atkins noted that drinking 17 beers a day can lead to alcoholism and cirrhosis of the liver, and overdoing it on pizza can lead to obesity and other health problems.

    "Food, no matter how helpful it may be, is not a full preventive for prostate cancer," he said.

    I am conducting my own experiment. Anyone join me?
    And Shepards we shall be,
    for thee, My Lord, for thee,
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand,
    That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy Command.
    So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
    And teeming with souls will it ever be.
    In Nomine Patris, Et Filli, Et Spiritus Sancti.

    They just said that coffee daily can help counteract some of the negative effects of drinking on the liver. Looks like we have a winning combination!

    Maybe they could enhance the beer, like they do with orange juice or milk.
    Do it as a public sevice.





    We are the thin blue line
    between you
    and all the money in the world.

    And no you can't have any.

    You guys don't have that yet? We have an energy drink/malt liquor. I am very excited about the coffee vs. effects on liver. I drink a lot of coffee. I figure I have built up enough that I can drink a keg a day for the next ten years. Boss, I am going to need a little vacation time.
