'Beer is a healthy drink' says Andhra Pradesh Excise Minister K S Jawahar. It's a thought many would feel joyous about, if not agree entirely. 

'Who said beer is not a health drink? I am ready to prove it's a health drink, he told a channel late Monday night. A video of his individualistic opinion has gone viral on social media.

This remark by the Andhra minister came amidst the protest of the women in the state against the new liquor policy.

The minister was not available any further for clarification on his statement but reportedly he sent a long Whatsapp message to the channel listing many 'health' benefits of beer. 

The Andhra Pradesh Exercise department has, however, requested to ignore any news about promoting beer as a health drink in the state.

'If it's a health drink, why do we need a special license for brewing? It could even be sold in any general store', a senior official from the exercise department was quoted saying. 

Though, beer does have a few health benefits including anti-cancer properties, a reduced risk of cardiovascular diseases, increased bone density, prevention of dementia and coronary disease.

A few reactions to KS Jawahar's brutal opinion are listed below. Check them out!
