Jun Fuchimoto, a researcher for Japan's Sapporo beer company, told AFP that drinking 30 12-oz. cans of beer (about 4,500 calories) could provide enough of the chemical compound called humulone to help the human body fight the virus that causes the common cold.

Beer also has other health benefits such as increased bone density, reduced risk of heart disease, Alzheimer’s and other dementia. Plus, it makes your hair and skin shinier.

NEWSFEED.TIME.COM reports:
Drinking beer is good for you and your children, a study by Japan's oldest brewery says. Hops, one of the three basic ingredients of beer along with water and barley, contains a chemical compound called humulone, which can help the human body fight the virus that causes the common cold in adults, according to a report by the news agency Agence-France Presse.

    Although my dad will stay healthy, he drinks a lot more than 30 beers for other reasons than health.

    Beer has many healthy ingredients, but if you drink 30 a day, you would bcome so fat, that you would become morbidly obese! 12 a day is plenty! LOL !

    Ingredients in beer can also cause allergic reactions in many beer drinkers. I have seen more alcoholic beer drinkers die. If one is going to drink better off drinking the more expensive brands of liquor and wines.

    I don't think my liver would appreciate it.Think i'd blow up like a blimp.The thought of a beer belly grosses me out.Diabetics shouldn't be drinking all that a day either.Beer acts as a hair cleanser removing build up.Therefore,bringing back shine.

    Hell no. I'd be sick as a dog and too hungover to get up in the morning. I don't mind a cold beer once in a while but that is all. If I am going to do some drinking, I stick with whiskey and it has to be Canadian for it to stay down.

    If you drink 30 beers a day it might keep you from getting an infection but you will get a major beer belly and if you keep it up for long there is a special club you might want to join....and that a judge might insist you visit.

    It's called AA.

    I would be totally wasted off of a six pack, I would probably die at 20 beers, so I don't think I could make it to 30 beers.

    Beer drinking is a fast way to enlarge your already engorged and disgusting belly.
    There are actual ways to get and remain healthy called diet and exercise.
    Duh!

    Yes, because you would have no side effects that would, I don't know, be WAY WORSE THAN THE COMMON COLD from drinking 30 Beers!

    Curb infection, but die of cirrhosis. Hops can be raised by anybody willing to put up a trellis. You can also buy hops at the healthfood store. It is true that Hops can stop a cold. You don't need beer to get Hops into your system.

    It really depends over what period of time. Thirty at once and you have very drunk people who won't get the flu. If it's 30 over time then 10 days or two weeks is fine.

    You would not stay healthy. You would die of liver failure which is not a really nice way to go.

    I enjoy a cold one now and then anyhow, so I guess this would give new meaning to a toast to good health
