Well scientists have once again proven what we have known all along. This time it's in the suds.


Drinking beer makes people happy.

And now it's scientifically proven.

German scientists recently looked at 13,000 different food elements to see which was the best at stimulating the reward centre of the brain.

The top of that list: brewskies.


www.torontosun.com...

How does this happen?


The golden beverage contains hordenine, an alkaloid (organic compound) contained in malted barley...

*snip*

“It came as a bit of surprise that a substance in beer activates the dopamine D2 receptor...

*snip*

It's a concept that scientists call hedonic hunger or pleasure eating. The happiness effect is a result of dopamine, a neurotransmitter.

According to the German scientists, beer stimulates the brain's reward centre where the dopamine D2 receptor is contained.


But the party poopers also leave a caveat:


While beer connoisseurs will toast to these findings, remember that the over consumption of booze still can negatively affect your health.


So drink beer, be happy.

I love when science can confirm by bias.

Problem is a lot of people replace true happiness with the happiness beer gives them. I rarely drink myself so I may be a little biased here.

True happiness?

Where's the evidence such a thing exists?

Make mine Modelo

I try and not touch the stuff myself... makes my fingers sticky!!

I mostly live off beer. Rocket fuel, you know.

Plus it breaks my determination not to order pizza or other takeout food! Makes tinfoil hats redundant too!!!

YAY science!

Even though I can't drink alcohol I can still get into the happy:



Malted barley is the second ingredient after water. And it's damn tasty too.

Well, I have just started on a bottle of Butcombe Original and I can say I'm happier. Proving scientists can prove the bleeding obvious.

Beer can also make you angry, depressed, and sick.

Man I'm glad we have a bunch of geniuses on the cutting edge of science...

I know a lot of people like that including myself.. I can drink beers all night and have fun playing chess or cards or whatever, no problem..

But, introduce some cabernet , or merlot, or gin, or tequila,or jaeger, or, soco, and Its like someone turns on my idiot switch..

Funny enough I don't get like that off crown xo ..

So yeah..I don't drink anything but beer unless it's a special occasion I may have aa shot or two.. I keep a bottle of xo in the meat freezer..been in there since last New year's..

Nothing wrong with a sixer of ottercreeks backseat burner though.


Those were my last two

Now you know how I feel about non alcoholic beer..

But,

Understanding your situation, I'll give you and only you a pass..
