Default I knew it...."Hope for guys: Beer ingredient eyed in prostate cancer prevention"

New research in Germany indicates that xanthohumol, a compound found in hops, may prevent prostate cancer!

Here's the link to the article:

Hookers can help reduce the risk of prostate cancer too.

Beer, chocolate and fried eggs. You'll live to be a hundred.

Default Beer may help prevent cancer!

MOD EDIT: Threads merged.

Beer may help prevent prostate cancer

HEIDELBERG, Germany -- It is a story guys everywhere have been waiting to hear. Beer may actually help prevent prostate cancer. (Sorry Yoopers)

Preliminary evidence shows an ingredient in beer that's derived from hops is able to block the effect of testosterone on the prostate.

However, one doctor told USA Today that if beer could prevent prostate cancer, we would already see lower rates of it.

Researches agree more research needs to be done before any conclusions can be made.
