Drinking Alcohol Cuts Arthritis Risk

Bloomberg reported this week on a recent UK study showing that those who drink alcohol on more than 10 days a month reduce the risk of rheumatoid arthritis and its painful effects.

Non-drinkers were four times more likely to develop rheumatoid arthritis than people who drank alcohol on more than 10 days a month, according to the research published online today by the U.K. journal Rheumatology. Arthritis patients who drank regularly had less severe symptoms than non-drinkers, the study found.

Chalk this up to yet another reason why alcohol, in moderation, and consumed responsibly, can be advantageous to your health.
