A Fine Day on the Health Beat

News for guys is looking pretty good today. We'll start with an unfortunate truth: if you have a prostate, it is possible you could get prostate cancer. That's bad. Recent research suggests, however, that an ingredient in beer can reduce your risk of that happening. That's good. But wait, it's present in such low amounts that you'd have to drink a whole lot of beer to acquire that benefit, which would have other, negative, health effects. That's bad. But wait, another study says that drinking four cups of coffee a day can reduce a person's risk of developing cirrhosis of the liver by 80%. That's good.

Given these findings, I'll have three beers and a cup of coffee with free refills. I've got a lot of conditioning work to do.
