FOR MEDICAL REASONS
A moderate amount of alcohol has been shown to help reduce
the risk of several health problems
While drinking too much will weaken your bones, a study
published in the American Journal
Nutrition found that men who had seven to ten beers a week had greater hip bone density (4.5%) than nondrinkers (3.4%).
Booze actually helps keep your mind sharp. A study
published in the
Journal Of The American Medical
Association found that people over 65 who have between
one and six alcoholic drinks a week have a lower risk of dementia.
While those who drink red wine in moderation have been shown to have a lower risk of cardiovascular disease than nondrinkers, a study
Nutrition Research said that beer was just as effective.
