Is beer good for your heart?

American Dietetic Association
We often hear about how red wine can be good for the heart. But what about beer? A new report from the American Dietetic Association (ADA) shows beer has a lot of nutrition and heart benefits.

The ADA says drinking beer moderately can increase the good (HDL) cholesterol, lower the bad (LDL) cholesterol, and reduce the risk of gallstones and type 2 diabetes.

So how much beer is considered a moderate amount? The ADA says it’s one 12-ounce glass a day for women and two for men.

And since we’re talking about having a healthy heart, how about telling five of your friends how they can fight heart disease? Do it.
