Today is "Drink Beer Day" day so it's fitting that a new study reveals it may be good for your health. Researchers in Sweden found that women who drink one or two pints each week were at lower risk of suffering a heart attack.

Their risk is 30% lower than heavy drinkers and women who never drink beer. But the positive results only come with one or two drinks per week. And researchers say this doesn't necessarily mean that women should drink beer regularly. There are still disadvantages and health risks linked to alcohol consumption.
