We knew that alcohol was good for you! First, we hear red wine is good for the heart. And now a study says that beer is actually good for our bones, preventing osteoporosis.
Silicon plays a major role in bone formation. Beer has been claimed to be one of the most important sources of silicon in the Western diet.
The study subjects were all women, presumably because osteoporosis is more common in women and not because this phenomenon is only true for women. So ladies and gents, drink up!
