17 beers a day keeps prostate cancer away

especially when combined with pizza, research finds.

“It’s every man’s dream to hear that beer and pizza can prevent cancer,” [Dr. Richard N. Atkins, CEO of the National Prostate Cancer Coalition] said. “However, the 17 beers and four large pizzas needed to get enough xanthohumol and lycopene to help prevent prostate cancer is unfortunately not advised.”

  1. Not to mention that you might be ingesting other substances that promote cancer along with those helpings of xanthohumol and lycopene. I tend to ignore the latest studies about what foods are or are not good for you. That area of “science” gets a lot more press than it deserves.
