A Beer A Day Seems to Keep the Doctor Away

Beer! Maybe one (or two) every day helps to improve your body’s resistance to disease. The study found that even non-alcoholic beer seems to help, so maybe it’s just the fermentation that’s doing the trick. Science leads the way.

Watch the video and then do the accompanying English language exercises on our website.

The news is a consistent source of entertainment, knowledge and discovery that never ceases to exist and always comes out with more and more material each day. Because it plays such a vital part in our lives and is so important to keep up with, it is without a doubt a piece of your everyday routine that can’t go ignored.

Whether it is to understand the ramifications of recent legislation passed, to hear about recent events and grasp the potential consequences to your country, or simply hear about what is happening in other countries in order to compare them to what’s happening in yours, the news is certainly a staple in our lives and the most consistent way to get information.

This is why Scrambled Eggs has decided to unite two of your biggest worlds: learning English and keeping up with what is happening in the world. We hope our challenging daily exercises, composed of listening, vocabulary and comprehension exercises in English, will satisfy both of those above worlds in a satisfactory and also entertaining way.

Like wine, beer can have health benefits when consumed in moderation. Non-alcoholic beers have become

wildly popular recently, but are these drinks also healthful?

In a pilot study, researchers report that compared to their pre-trial microbiome, men who drank either one alcoholic or non-alcoholic lager daily had a more diverse set of gut microbes, which can reduce the risk for some diseases.

Studies have shown that when more types of bacteria are present, people tend to have a lower chance of developing chronic diseases, such as heart disease and diabetes. And beer contains compounds and microorganisms from its fermentation that could impact the variety of microbes in the human gut.

A previously published study showed that when both men and women consumed non-alcoholic lager beer for 30 days, their gut microbiome diversity increased. Many of those same people were also in a second group that drank an alcoholic version of the beer, and it didn’t have the same effect.

In this double-blind study, 19 healthy men were randomly divided into two groups who drank 11 fluid ounces of either alcoholic or non-alcoholic lager with dinner for 4 weeks. But at the end of the 4-week period, both groups had greater bacterial diversity in their gut microbiome, indicating an improvement in intestinal health.

The researchers suggest that these results could differ from those of the prior study because of the different designs of the trials, and because the participants were living in different communities.

But based on this pilot study, the researchers say that consuming one bottle of beer, regardless of its alcohol content, may be beneficial to the gut microbiome and intestinal health of men.

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is asking Apple and Google to remove TikTok from their app stores. Their reason? National security concerns surrounding TikTok’s parent company, ByteDance.

In a letter to the CEOs of Apple and Google, the FCC Commissioner described ByteDance as “required by law to comply with [Chinese government] surveillance demands.” The commissioner, citing a new report, said that ByteDance’s Chinese staff accessed US TikTok users’ data on multiple occasions.

US officials have expressed concerns that Chinese government access to US users’ data or communications could put national security at risk. The FCC plays no role in regulating internet-based services such as app stores. Previous attempts by the US government to ban TikTok from US app stores have been unsuccessful.

The same day as the report, TikTok announced that it had migrated its US user data to cloud servers in the United States. They also stated that they would eventually be deleting backups of its US user data from its own servers.

The FCC Commissioner responded that he was not assured by the announcement because “it says nothing about where that data can be accessed from.”
