Non-Alcoholic Beer Could Relieve Inflammation-Related Neck Pain

neck pain beer and marathon runningFalling down drunk might the cause of some people’s neck pain but research suggests that non-alcoholic beer might offer relief from pain related to inflammation and upper respiratory tract infections, in addition to reducing the likelihood of inebriated mishaps.

A paper published by Scherr and colleagues looked at the effect of non-alcoholic beer on inflammation and the incidence of upper respiratory tract illness in men who ran marathons and their results could point to a novel way to manage neck pain.

The researchers looked at 277 male runners with an average age of 42 who were set to run the Munich Marathon. They tested the men’s blood 4 weeks and 1 week before the marathon and then immediately after the race, 24 hours after and 72 hours after. The men were randomly assigned to receive either a placebo beverage or non-alcoholic beer (1-1.5 litres per day) for 3 weeks before and 2 weeks after the marathon. The study was double-blinded, meaning that neither the participants nor the researchers knew which men were receiving the placebo or the non-alcoholic beer.

Why is Non-Alcoholic Beer Beneficial for Inflammation?

You might be asking why this study was carried out at all, given that beer is not considered a healthy component of the diet for the most part, regardless of its alcohol content. The reason is that non-alcoholic beer is actually a source of polyphenols that have antioxidant, antipathogenic, and anti-inflammatory activity in the body, suggesting that it may help prevent infection and inflammation.

Indeed, the researchers found that those drinking the non-alcoholic beer did have reduced levels of interleukin-6, an inflammatory marker, compared to those receiving the placebo drink, immediately after the race. Total blood leukocyte (white blood cell) counts were also lower in the beer drinkers, with counts 20% lower 24 hours after the race, suggesting better immune function.

Reduced URTIs with Non-Alcoholic Beer

The most significant benefit found was that the marathon runners who drank non-acloholic beer had a 3.25-fold reduced incidence of upper respiratory tract infection (URTI) during the 2 weeks after the marathon, compared to placebo. As symptoms of URTI can include coughing and sneezing, both of which put pressure on the structures of the cervical spine, reducing the occurrence of these infections and inflammation in general could help prevent neck pain or reduce existing symptoms. Coughs and sneezes can even, in extreme cases, result in disc herniation as they increase spinal pressure.

Unfortunately for those who like a tipple now and then, these benefits of non-alcoholic beer are not shared by beer itself as alcohol can reduce immunity to infection, increase inflammation, and dehydrate the body, increasing the risk of spinal disc rupture and compression in the cervical spine. Alcohol also increases the risk of oral cancer, of which neck pain may be an early symptom. For marathon runners and anyone engaging in strenuous physical activity it may be that drinking non-alcoholic beer, or other beverage that is rich in polyphenols, is a good way to reduce inflammation, infection risk and subsequent neck pain.

    For many that own or interact with digital currencies, the IRS’s guidance on cryptocurrency tax reporting has raised more questions than answers. While taxes are not necessarily anyone’s favorite topic, it’s important to understand when you need to report taxes on crypto in order to avoid a costly IRS audit. “MicroStrategy remains dedicated to our enterprise analytics customers and our goal of operating a growing profitable business intelligence company,” said Phong Le, President & CFO, MicroStrategy Incorporated. “We believe our bitcoin strategy, including our bitcoin holdings and related activities in support of the bitcoin network, is complementary to our software business, by enhancing awareness of our brand and providing opportunities to secure new customers.” Experts had suggested that the SEC might allow bitcoin trading if it were arranged this way, based on futures (bets on price fluctuations, versus the actual crypto itself) and safely tucked into a regulated exchange. Ironically, the SEC has not officially announced ProShares’s ETF, but the New York Times reports its prospectus “met with no opposition ahead of its effective deadline,” meaning the fund is ready to launch tomorrow on the NYSE, under the ticker symbol “BITO.” It is pretty easy actually. The entire process involves five key steps. They are: a) Choose a crypto exchange; b) Create your account and verify it; c) Deposit the fund and start investing; d) Place you order to buy desired cryptocurrency, e) Select a storage method. However, there are also other ways to invest in cryptocurrencies. These include crypto ETFs (similar to those of gold and other ETFs) or investing in cryptocurrency-related stocks. These options are not so mainstream yet. Data from Coinglass highlighted that funding rates across crypto derivatives exchanges returned to the negative territory during the weekend, tilting towards bearish. Furthermore, BTC’s failed attempt at a recovery pulled the Crypto Fear & Greed Index into ‘extreme fear.’ CMO of Kryptomon Tomer Nuni told Insider “Musk’s takeover of Twitter will most likely provide even more credibility to doge from both crypto enthusiasts and the general public. He aims to give it utility as an acceptable payment method on one of the biggest social networks in the world, and the most popular among the international crypto community. We will probably see it reaching the top 5 or even top 3 coins by the year’s end, placing it closer to ethereum and bitcoin.”

    A free bet is a welcome offer that typically a bookmaker will promote to try and entice new users to bet with them. Normally you will have to deposit money and make a qualifying bet with your new bookmaker in order to receive free bets but this mechanic varies from bookmaker to bookmaker. Some will match your deposit as bonus funds as soon as you deposit, whilst others will award you a fixed amount of free bets once you have placed a qualifying bet. While not quite qualifying as a new bookies on the scene, QuinnBet is a UK-based online sports book that operates with a UKGC license. This is a betting site that keeps matters traditional in the British sense of the word as it concentrates upon the holy trinity of UK betting – football, horse racing and greyhounds. There are many online bookmakers licensed to operate betting UK websites and more new free betting sites offers to appear. Because we are in the UK we only list licensed bookmakers from here. If you live in the UK we advise that you bet only with bookmakers licensed by the UK Gambling Commission. There were a few notable bets at William Hill sportsbooks, with one bettor in Nevada and one in Iowa wagering $100 each at 200-1 odds to win $20,000 each. “We were a good six-figure loser,” Michael Grodsky, vice president of marketing at William Hill told VSiN. Course history vs. recent form can be a point of contention in the golf betting community. All too often in golf we see someone come off a string of missed cuts only to put together the perfect four rounds for their first career win. We also see golfers win an event after never having cracked the top 10 of a field there or miss a cut after five-plus years of top finishes. It all goes into making golf one of the most exciting and sweat-inducing sports on which to bet. Tulsa has had good weather leading up to the tournament that should produce a fast and firm test for the best golfers in the world. Temperatures on Thursday and Friday will be in the 80s with wind gusts up to 30 mph in the afternoons. Temperatures for the weekend will be in the 70s. There’s no real risk of rain, but there’s always a threat of afternoon storms in Oklahoma.

Trzeba było tylko “prawie” przebić rękę prowadzącej program śniadaniowy. Postaw na milion, to kolejny ciekawy teleturniej. Uczestnicy kładą wybrane sumy pieniężna na zapadniach, które ich zdaniem opisane są poprawną odpowiedzią. Program emitowany jest przez TVP 2 od 2011 r. Prowadzącym teleturniej Postaw na milion jest Łukasz Nowicki. Rosyjska ruletka Lubicie oglądać polskie teleturnieje? Oglądamy bo lubimy prowadzącego, bo jesteśmy ciekawi przebiegu gry, ale czy do końca cieszymy się z cudzej wygranej? W niektórych teleturniejach, pieniądze jakie wygrywają uczestnicy nie są za duże, ale dla uczestnika liczy się także zabawa. W artykule opiszemy kilka polskich teleturniejów emitowanych na antenie Polsatu, TVN i TVP. Kryteriów jest wiele, ale decydujących — kilka. Jedno z nich to właśnie deklarowana podstawa opodatkowania, czyli przewidywane na okres koncesyjny, czyli sześciu lat, przychody, od których operatorzy kasyn płacą 50 proc. specjalnego podatku od gier. Zgodnie z rozporządzeniem MF, trzy punkty dostaje oferta z najwyższą zadeklarowaną podstawą opodatkowania, dwa — druga w kolejności, a wszystkie kolejne otrzymują 1 punkt. Jak to kryterium wygląda w praktyce? Dobrze to widać na przykładzie rozstrzygniętego w kwietniu 2018 r. przetargu na dwie koncesje kasynowe w województwie łódzkim, zdobyte przez spółkę Casino z grupy ZPR. Złożyła w nim trzy oferty. Dolny Śląsk to także kraina zamków i pałaców. Żaden inny region w Polsce nie posiada takiej liczby tych budowli. Co czwarty zamek i pałac jest bowiem zlokalizowany w województwie dolnośląskim. Najbardziej znanymi są: zamek Grodno z XII wieku, XIII wieczne zamki Bolków, Chojnik i Czocha, Książ z XIII wieku, któremu obecny kształt nadano w XVIII i XIX wieku. Powstałe tu w czasie II wojny światowej podziemne tajemne przejścia i korytarze miały stanowić kwaterę główną Hitlera.
