ABSTRACT
The article focuses on a study by researchers at Oregon State University's College of Pharmacy which revealed that the main ingredients in beer appear to thwart prostate cancer. According to the study, a person would have to quaff more than 17 pints a day to imbibe a medically effective dose of xanthohumol, the cancer-fighting chemical found in hops.
