Beer could prevent prostate cancer

 TESTS made recently in Germany have uncovered that men who drink beer could keep down their chances of developing prostate cancer.
Experimentations have demonstrated that a compund found in beer blocks a chemical reaction that can conduct to the developing of prostate cancer.

This harsh disease is treated with drugs that does the same thing.

 "We hope that one day we can demonstrate that xanthohumol prevents prostate cancer development, first in animal models and then in humans, but we are just at the beginning." said one of the scientist involved in the study

Xanthohumol is a potent antioxidant, recognised to bear anti-cancer properties. It could also be found in various fruits.

In a previous study was proposed that the chemical compound could cut down the chances of females getting breast cancer.
