Alcohol Could Protect Older Women From Osteoporosis


A study by researchers at Boston University Medical Center finds that alcohol, when consumed in moderation, may improve women´s bone health. This applies to women in menopause.

"Abstinence from alcohol resulted in increased markers of bone turnover (...) whereas resumption of alcohol consumption reduced bone turnover markers," the researchers claim.
