More science

It’s a slow week (so far) so I just thought I’d share a couple stories from the ‘to blog’ file, even if they are old.

First, we have people attempting to tweak beer so that it’s more hydrating. The article is emphasizing how this could reduce hangovers–although I would think that the lower alcohol content would do that on its own, but I look at it in a different way. It might also have applications for places where you have to boil your water. A more hydrating beer would keep longer and have a more positive effect on health.

Next up, we have research into a hop molecule that may help treat diabetes. Due to the sugars involved, I doubt diabetics could suddenly start drinking beer for their ailment but wouldn’t it be way, way better if medicine came via beer instead of pill form?
