Re: Beer IS better than water

Science says so. Spanish researchers have said that beer is better at rehydration after strenous exercise than water.

Professor Manuel Garzon, a member of Granada's medical faculty, made the finding after tests on 25 students over several months. Researchers believe that it is the sugars, salts, and bubbles in a beer that may help people absorb fluids more quickly.


The subjects in the study were asked to run on a treadmill at temperatures of 104F (40C) until they were close to exhaustion. Once they had reached the point of giving up, researchers measured their hydration levels, motor skills, and concentration ability.


Half of the subjects were given two half pints of Spanish lager to drink, and the other half were given just water.


Garzon said that the rehydration effection in those who were given beer was "slightly better" than those who were given only water. He also believes that the carbon dioxide in beer helps quench thirst more quickly, and that beer's carbohydrates replace calories lost during physical exertion.
Further proves Ben Franklin's statement that "Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy."

The article goes on to say that
researchers recommend moderate consumption of beer as a part of athletes' diets. "Moderate consumption" for men is 500ml per day, and for women is 250ml per day.
Benjamin Franklin also said not to ignore older women sexually, just put a sack over their head and regard them from the waist down.

Yeah, that's not "moderate" around here, either. That's what happens when you sit down.

This can't be right. Sounds like something The Onion would put out.

Let's be scientific. Further study is warranted. I would like to volunteer

Sure. As long as we're drinking Canadian beer... not that American crap that already is water.

^So you'd rather drink that Canadian bilge water?

To do the study right, we'll need English beer (or microbrews).

I read somewhere that the dehydrating effects of beer, and coffee also, have been exagerated.
