TOKYO — Consuming large quantities of a key ingredient in beer can protect against winter sniffles and even some serious illnesses in small children, a Japanese brewery said citing a scientific study.

A chemical compound in hops, the plant brewers use to give beer its bitter taste, provides an effective guard against a virus that can cause severe forms of pneumonia and bronchitis in youngsters, Sapporo Breweries said Wednesday.

I do not agree with this, being that twice in my life i have started out with sniffles, had some beer, and my condition went from sniffles to full on cold with sore throat, very runny nose, and a low to mid grade fever the next day. I'm thinking this is one of those studies people are gonna have to take with a rather large grain of salt.
