A study of the mortality of blue-collar workers at a Dublin brewery, who consume more than average amounts of beer (usually in the form of stout), between 1954 & 1973 showed that they had as good an expectation of life as all Dublin males, with no increased risk of death from cancer of the oesophagus, pharynx, liver or of cirrhosis of the liver, accidents or suicide, conditions normally associated with the high consumption of alcohol.
