Beer is healthier than wine, says Charles Bamforth, chairman of the food science department at the University of California.
Dr Bamforth, author of Beer: Health and Nutrition, told delegates that beer also provided a valuable resource of soluble fibre, which aids digestion, and that the active ingredient in alcohol â€“ either from beer or wine â€“ helps to counter blockage of the arteries.
Presumably he’s talking about moderate consumption on beer. If you drink like a bleacher bum at Wrigley Field, it’s probably not as healthy.
