(NEW YORK) -- An ingredient in beer can supposedly help people get over colds, according to a new study.
But don't get too worked up -- there's a lot more to the story than that.
For one thing, the study was conducted at Sapporo Medical University in Japan. If the name sounds familiar, it's because the school is owned by beer maker Sapporo Breweries.Just because the study was sponsored by a brewery doesn't taint it, right. Oh by the way, you need to drink more than a case of beer to get enough of the active ingredient to have an effect. Something tells me at that point you wouldn't really care that you had a cold!
