Going To The Pub Is Good For You – This Is Why

Hops contain antibacterial and anti-fungal properties which could stop the growth of diseases.

Scientists at the University of Idaho are currently working on extracting the compounds and finding a way of creating them synthetically in the lab.

Dr Kristopher Waynant, who leads the project, said: "When researchers extract healthful chemicals from hops, they first have to determine whether they have separated out the specific compounds they're interested in.

"But if you can figure out how to make these compounds from scratch, you know they are the right ones."
