I would never, ever intentionally read "The Blaze. On its own "About" page, it says right away: "The Blaze is a news, information and opinion site brought to you by Glenn Beck and a dedicated team of writers, journalists & video producers."

So, yeah, that's enough to get me to not read it.

However, my iPad App called Zite, which assembles a web-based daily magazine for me, linked to this gem: FORGET WATER: DRINKING BEER POST-WORKOUT IS BETTER FOR YOU, SCIENTISTS SAY. From the article:

In a rare piece of good news for those who like a pint, Spanish researchers say beer can help someone who is dehydrated retain liquid better than water.


Prof Garzon asked a group of students to do strenuous exercise in temperatures of around 40ºC (104ºF). Half were given a pint of beer, while the others received the same volume of water.
Prof Garzon, who announced the results at a press conference in Granada beneath a banner declaring “Beer, Sport, Health”, said the hydration effect in those who drank beer was “slightly better”.

Juan Antonio Corbalan, a cardiologist who worked formerly with Real Madrid football players and Spain’s national basketball team, said beer had the perfect profile for re-hydration after sport.

I personally plan to drink beer while I exercise. Every morning in the gym, I join rows of people on treadmills who look positively dismal as they lumber along, swigging purified water from their squeeze bottles. But not me. I'll be smiling away, drinking, say, a British Brown Ale or perhaps and IPA.

I may stop drinking beer altogether becuause a Beckkk-related site says it is good for you.

I am starting to think beer is deadly.

1. I won't get that app unless you can block Beck.

2. I am pretty sure Beck is a Mormon and doesn't drink Beer.
