We already know that drinking alcohol can help improve your memory. It’s an brilliant discovery that counters that whole “what happened last night?” moment when you wake up hungover.

Well, guess what, beer drinkers — there’s some more good news about chugging the good stuff headed your way.

Be still, my beating heart.

Beer Consumption Can Help Prevent Heart Disease

According to the New York Post, a new study has revealed that men who have three to 14 drinks a week are 21 percent less likely to die of heart disease. So basically, do some drinking to keep that ticker ticking.

It doesn’t stop there, though, because guys who drink the same amount are 13 percent less likely to suffer a premature death. Drink long and prosper, gents.

But hey, the ladies get some good news out of this, too. According to the same study, women who threw back three to seven drinks a week are 34 percent less likely to kick buckets from heart disease, and 25 percent less likely to get taken out with a premature death. That being the case, drink up, ladies.

This is great news for everyone, you guys. I might just crack open a brew tonight in celebration of good health. Perhaps you should do the same.

If liquor and beer aren’t your thing, maybe you should toke up and join the fight against leukemia.
