Good news, a Greek (the country, not a fraternity) study suggests that drinking beer may help improve blood flow to the heart. As Benjamin Franklin said, "Beer is living proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy." And apparently healthy too.

According to the UPI, it turns out researchers in Greece have discovered that drinking beer causes your blood vessels to become more flexible, helping blood to flow more smoothly.

Wine and liquor did not have the same effect.

North Dakota, New Hampshire, Montana, South Dakota, and Wisconsin beer drinkers gulped down the most brew per capita last year.
