A Pint of Guinness is Good for You

Actually 8 ounces more than a pint...I'll drink to that!

From BBC NEWS | Health | Guinness good for you - official:

"The researchers told a meeting of the American Heart Association in Orlando, Florida, that the most benefit they saw was from 24 fluid ounces of Guinness - just over a pint - taken at mealtimes.

They believe that "antioxidant compounds" in the Guinness, similar to those found in certain fruits and vegetables, are responsible for the health benefits because they slow down the deposit of harmful cholesterol on the artery walls.
