Consuming large quantities of a key ingredient in beer can protect against winter sniffles and even some serious illnesses in small children, a Japanese brewery said citing a scientific study.

A chemical compound in hops, the plant brewers use to give beer its bitter taste, provides an effective guard against a virus that can cause severe forms of pneumonia and bronchitis in youngsters, Sapporo Breweries said Wednesday.

In research with scientists at Sapporo Medical University, the compound — humulone — was found to be effective in curbing the respiratory syncytial (RS) virus, said the company, which funded the study...

I made my son cry by the age of 3 when I denied him beer. lmao.gif

Great find OP! hi5.gif Hops also has antibacterial and anti-fungal properties and has been proven more efficient than sulfa applied topically on infected wounds or wounds that are difficult to heal.

I consulted my phyto-medicine book for that.

Cheers! cheers.gif

This has been known for about 20 years.

The real secret is to add the protein and calcium that beer is missing.

For complete nutrition you need beer and PIZZA!!!

Interesting also is that cannabis is a close relative to the hop plant ...only the oils are more volatile.

Requiring the use of a hop-back during the final pump out to properly infuse your beer with skunky medicinal goodness.

Then as the alcohol levels rise during fermentation the oils are fully absorbed into the final product.

Speaking of protein though, just read this tonight on Swedish news. They (at the Karolinska instiute) found a new protein called PGC-1alpha4 which regulates muscle mass and strength.

In the study, mice who received the protein in specific muscles increased their muscle fibers by 60 per cent. damned.gif That's pretty significant.


Link in Swedish only I'm afraid.

People have been drinking beer since the dawn of fermentation. I think the man-boob thing has to be attributed to other phenomena in modern life, such as endocrine disruptors, diet, chemicals...who knows...

I heard grafting is possible between hops and cannabis.

Yup.

Might make for some interesting combinations.

Would Mary Jane grafted onto hops increase the bitterness yet retain the THC concentration?

I don't think grafting the other way around would be useful as little to no THC would be produced ...unless you wanted a hemp flavor quality passed into the oils. Maybe you might get alittle THC? Depend I suppose if you are just grafting onto the root structure or stalk.

HA! The guy is full of shït!

Hops was added to beer because of its antibacterial and anti-fungal properties. It kept beer from spoiling. Phytoestrogens are naturally occurring while estrogen mimicking chemicals are a pretty recent phenomenon... About as recent as man-boobs? fatman.gif
