Beer can often lead to a lot of weird news stories, but these weird news stories are actually about the beer.
When you play rugby, your teeth are going to get knocked out. It’s simply a workplace hazard in a very violent and aggressive sport. At least when it’s all over, you can hit the pub and knock back a few cold ones with your teammates. But why wait? Cerveza Salta is a brewery in Argentina. As a publicity stunt, it fitted several local rugby players with some new dental appliances: bottle openers in their jaws where there were teeth before they were claimed by rugby. Now, all those rugby players have to do to get a beer open is stick it in their mouths and pry. (Ironically, if you tried to do this with your teeth, and not a metal opener installed in your mouth, you’d probably lose a tooth.)
As if beer wasn’t great enough, it might be able to make you appear more youthful and more attractive. Collagen is a natural substance found in the human body that makes skin more elastic, but it dissipates as a person ages. In Japan, many women take collagen supplements in liquid or powder forms to restore what time has taken away. Suntory, a Japanese brewery, introduced a much more interesting way to take collagen: Precious. It’s a beer with five percent alcohol per can…and two grams of collagen.
