Beer in Health and Disease Prevention, Hardback Book


  • Information


Beer in Health and Disease Prevention is the single comprehensive volume needed to understand beer and beer-related science.

Presenting both the concerns and problems of beer consumption as well as the emerging evidence of benefit, this book offers a balanced view of today's findings and the potential of tomorrow's research. Just as wine in moderation has been proposed to promote health, research is showing that beer - and the ingredients in beer - can have similar impact on improving health, and in some instances preventing disease.

This book addresses the impact of beer and beer ingredients on cancers, cardiovascular disease, anti-oxidant benefits, and other health related concerns.

It offers a holistic view from beer brewing to the isolation of beer-related compounds.

It contains self-contained chapters written by subject matter experts. This book is recommended for scientists and researchers from a variety of fields and industries from beer production to health-care professionals.
