Danish brewers point to study that says beer's benefits equal

June 23, 1999 - Another study has found that beer may reduce heart disease as effectively as red wine.


"It cannot be proved that there is any health advantage in drinking red wine, for example, rather than beer,'' the Danish Brewers Association reported this week, citing a study by the Institute of Epidemiology and Social Medicine at the University of Muenster.

The findings of a study based on 2,000 people in southern Germany contradicted a Danish study published in December, which found that people drinking moderate amounts of wine had a lower risk of stroke than those who consumed beer or spirits.
