Moderate alcohol consumption could help protect women against brittle bone disease, according to a new study.
Researchers at London's St Thomas Hospital examined the effect of alcohol on 46 pairs of identical twins, who drank either moderately or very little.
The study found that bone density seemed to correlate directly with amount of alcohol consumed. The article does not mention it, but it would be
interesting to know who paid for the study.
Now we need a comparative study of the effects on bone density of alcohol as compared to milk.
