All these research studies!

Reading about claims/findings from many of these research studies often makes me shake my head in disbelief. The latest one I saw was titled "Scientists suggest beer after a workout". Below are some of the claims/statements from that article:

1. The study involved a group of students who were asked to work out until their body temperature reached 104 degrees. Researchers then gave beer to half of the students and water to the other half.
2. Professor Manuel Garzon announced the results at a press conference in Granada, saying the hydration effect in those who drank beer was “slightly better,”
3. And their conclusion? Researchers at Granada University in Spain have found that beer can help the body rehydrate better after a workout than water or Gatorade.

My questions:
1. How many students? How were they selected? How were they split in the two groups?
2. Slightly better? Really??
3. Wow, that was fast!!
