Beer Contains Cancer-Fighting Ingredients

Jan 14, 2008
German scientists discovered that hops that is used in beer production had essential cancer-fighting agents.

The results of the study showed that xanthohumol, found in hops contains agents that inhibit enzymes which trigger cancer. Besides, xanthohumol helps in fighting carcinogens.

Dr. Werner Back, a brewing technology expert at the Technical University of Munich, explained that these findings indicate that beer can be actually healthy.

Xanthohumol found in hopes is long known as an antioxidant, reducing bad cholesterol level. Hops are, used in herbal medicine, contains phytoestrogens - agents, protecting against prostate, breast, bowel, and other cancers, cardiovascular disease, brain function disorders, post-menopausal symptoms and osteoporosis.

Xanthohumol deactivates enzymes called cytochromes P-4, that trigger the cancer process, thus preventing the development of tumors at an early stage.

However, the researchers explain that the amount of xanthohumol necessary to fight cancer equals to 60 regular beers and they are working to brew a healthy beer, containing high level of this helpful agent. It is also possible that xanthohumol will be added to other products to make it healthier.

On general, the higher is the amount of xanthohumol in beer, the darker it is and the healthier it is for you.

60 beers for any health benefits vs. one capsule with all the health benefits of xanthohumol. You be the judge ...

To all those who asked about cancer I can say that it's a group of diseases. During cancer cells act aggressively, meaning that they grow and part beyond normal limits, they may also act invasive, which means that they invade and destroy the nearby tissues, and there are also cases when calls act metastatic, meaning that they expand to other locations in human's body. No one really knows why cancer appears, one thing is important - and I REALLY MEAN IT - if YOU stop thinking about it there's a huge chance that you will NOT get it. However, in case you often think about it and are frightened then there is a possibility that your fears will turn into reality.

This is an excelent reason for Germany to enforce its famous Beer Purity Law. --a grateful USA Spaten drinker.

Great article! This statement, the amount of xanthohumol necessary to fight cancer equals to 60 regular beers, is, however, inappropriately ambiguous. 60 beers a year, Im protected and then some; 60 beers a month, no problem; 60 a week and I have to go into training; a day not even when I was in college.
