A BEER FOR CANCER PATIENTS

A Czech organisation has created a non-alcoholic beer specifically targeted at those undergoing cancer treatment. The Prague based breast cancer group, Mamma Help wanted to create a beverage that would give patients the nutrients their bodies lacked due to the side effects of undergoing chemotherapy treatment. The beer is fortified with extra vitamins and minerals such as Vitamin B and Potassium. The Mamma beer also addresses a condition called dysgeusia, a condition that alters the taste palate as a result of chemotherapy treatments. The beer which is already available in Prague’s oncology wards and pharmacies will also be available to buy in the countries supermarkets.
