A new study by Japanese beer maker Sapporo Breweries says drinking beer can help you avoid catching a cold.

The compound called Humulone in the beer is good for fighting off RSV which can lead to bronchitis and pneumonia in some people.

However, the concentration of humulone in beer is so small, you would have to drink about 30 cans for it to be effective.

Gotta do what you gotta do!
