Someday Beer May Be As Good For You As Wine

Posted:

Some day soon, you may be able to get the same heart benefit from beer as you get from wine and we can thank some Texas students for that. 

At Rice University, they are genetically modifying yeast so it will ferment and make beer, and produce the compound resveratrol.  This is the same compound in wine has been shown to help prevent heart disease. 

The only problem right now with the beer is that it tastes really bad, but they're working on that.
