One More Reason to Love beer

Boston Marathon, Need a Beer?

Running a marathon isn’t easy, it is 26.2 miles, that is a long long way.  After running that absurd distance your immune system takes a hit.  You are extremely susceptible to infections.  A new study on the effects of drinking beer leading up to marathon has shown that the test subjects that consumed 1.5 liters of non-alcoholic wheat beer per day for two weeks leading up to the race “displayed less inflammatory reactions, a stronger immune system, less susceptibility to colds.” I want to see some test results for alcoholic wheat beer.  Just remember drinking wheat beer can help your immune system, specially if you run a marathon.
