A Cure For A Cold?

According to a recent study, beer contains an ingredient, humulone, that could help fight the common cold.
(NEW YORK) -- An ingredient in beer can supposedly help people get over colds, according to a new study. 
But don't get too worked up -- there's a lot more to the story than that. 
For one thing, the study was conducted at Sapporo Medical University in Japan. If the name sounds familiar, it's because the school is owned by beer maker Sapporo Breweries.
Just because the study was sponsored by a brewery doesn't taint it, right. Oh by the way, you need to drink more than a case of beer to get enough of the active ingredient to have an effect. Something tells me at that point you wouldn't really care that you had a cold!

See "Can a Cold One Cure Colds?" for the complete story.


  1. I knew there was a reason I was so dang healthy.

  2. Unbeknownst to me, I've been testing this theory for years...

  3. Meh, CS works faster. Hangover's easier to deal with, too. {chuckle}

  4. I am sure all my friends have fully vetted this study. :-)
