Beer is said to be the third most popular drink in the world, and it is one of humankind’s oldest recorded recipes.
However, the drink is widely regarded as being an unhealthy choice.
Interestingly, while beer should never be classed as a health drink, some studies suggest it may have benefits as well as drawbacks.
This article takes a look at what the current research says about beer. As part of this, we’ll examine the nutrition profile, concerns, and purported benefits.
First of all, here is a look at the nutrition profile of regular beer per 100 ml and per 12 fl oz (355 ml) respectively (1).
It is worth noting that every variety of beer will have a slightly different nutrition profile, depending on the ingredients and brewing method.

A pair of high heels is a common fashion accessory for many women. But according to research, frequent use of high heels can force your body into an unnatural “plantarflexed” (tiptoe) position and inflict severe damage to your health in the long term.
How heels affect different parts of your body
Spine – Walking in high heels causes your spine to sway unnaturally, and stresses your lumbar erector spinae muscle, leading to a sore lower back.
Knee – Heels put extra weight on the inner side of the knees and knee joints, leading to the risk of twisting injuries to the knees.
Feet – Heels cause your body mass to be shifted onto the balls of your feet. Apart from bunions, blisters and calluses, this uneven weight distribution can cause pinched nerves, swollen joints and Achilles tendonitis.
Varicose veins – Heels force your ankles to bend forward, restricting blood circulation in your lower limbs and leading to varicose veins. This may result in ruptured veins, and a swollen and painful sensation in your legs.
Calves – Long-term walking in heels shortens the muscles and tendons in your calves, leading to stiffness, reduced range of motion, and a higher risk of strains, sprains and lower-body injury.
