Beer can halt cancer!!
Jan 20 2005

A MYSTERY ingredient in beer may protect against cancer, it was claimed yesterday.

Compounds in lager may neutralise cancer-causing agents in food, say Japanese scientists.

They appeared to reduce DNA damage to the livers, lungs and kidneys of laboratory mice by up to 85 per cent.

But whether or not this really is good news for beer drinkers remains to be seen.

The mice were given non-alcoholic beer - and excessive alcohol consumption is known to increase the risk of cancer.
