Changing Tastes

I don't like beer, but if it keeps me healthy...

Beer could be the new weapon against cancer - Scotsman.com News: "MEN now have another excuse to go down the pub thanks to new research suggesting that a compound in beer may prevent prostate cancer.

The disease is commonly treated with drugs that act in a similar way."
