A group of researchers are developing a beer that could reduce the risk of cancer.
An ambitious team consisting of six undergraduates from Rice University is working on genetically grafting resveratrol -- an antibiotic that is a natural component of grapes -- into the ingredients that make up beer.
Previous experimentation has suggested resveratrol gives red wine anti-aging and cancer-fighting qualities. But the Rice students believe that designing beer with higher and more consistent concentrations of the chemical will create a frosty adult beverage with even better preventative powers.
But why stop there? Why can't science give us even more bang for our bender? We'd like some suds that also include Propecia for preventing hair-loss, HGH for muscle recovery and, finally, a splash of Viagra for all the ladies who suddenly don't look so unapproachable.
