I read the coolest article recently, relating alcohol intake to bone density in women over 50. Seriously… there’s actual scientific info to back this up. Check out the following article (http://www.lifeslittlemysteries.com/2665-alcohol-bone-health.html) and read the specifics for yourself.
While I’m not saying that everyone should go out and chug down two glasses of wine a day, I do like the idea that there are positive benefits to partaking in something I already enjoy. Granted, I’m not quite in the article’s target demographic yet, but I’ll be there at some point and I might as well start learning all I can about how to increase or maintain bone density as I get older. My family history allows for this to be fairly important, so I’ll be paying closer attention than I might have otherwise.
Hopefully you find this article to be as helpful as I did.
