Health Tip for Women

…….. just in time for the hot, sultry, south Florida weekend, too.

A study found that the bones of women who drink beer regularly are stronger, making them less likely to suffer from osteoporosis.

It is thought that the high level of silicon in beer slows down the thinning that leads to fractures and boosts the formation of new bone, the journal Nutrition reports.  Beer is also rich in phytoestrogens, plant versions of oestrogen, which keep bones healthy.

The researchers asked almost 1,700 healthy women with an average age of 48 about their drinking habits. They then underwent ultrasound scans of their hands, which showed the bones belonging to beer drinkers to be denser.  The women’s hands were chosen because the bones in the fingers are among the first to show signs of osteoporosis, a disease of bone that leads to an increased risk of fracture.

Those who had less than a pint a day, whom scientists classed as light beer drinkers, fared just as well as those in the moderate bracket, suggesting that even small amounts can boost bone health.

BeerBonesOkay, ladies.  Spill out that repulsive pitcher of green tea with the floating leafy detritus.  Lose the Red Bull, balls and all.  What do you want with testosterone booster, anyway — a hairy back?  And step away from the designer water in the phallic carcinogenic plastic landfill bottle.  This is your loving Uncle Health Nazi talking, so listen up!  DRINK BEER!

Wow.  Does this guy know about this?   Beer is Health Food!  Ladies: what’s good for your bones is good for my boner.  Win – Win!

Have a great weekend.  If you want me, I’ll be near the tap.

    Squatty I’m sure you’re a lovely soul but I assure you, when I enjoy my beer I will NOT be thinking of your boner. Save it for Guido.

    All kidding aside, the trouble with promoting beer as healthy is that any alcoholic product carries dangers of their own. I know of two cases where women were told to drink a glass of beer a day (to gain weight after a particularly difficult pregnancy), and both became alcoholics, believe it or not. They weren’t drinkers before, either. I’ve heard of other, similar tales.

    PS It makes a decent shampoo, too.
