Some good news for post-menopausal women – drink wine for healthy bones
It’s not always that post-menopausal women get a break. I lie, they are prone to breaks. Broken bones, that is, from osteoporosis, or thin bones.
However, a recent review has produced some fabulous conclusions. Drinking wine reduces the risk of hip fracture. Yes, that means women who drink wine are less likely to break their hips than women who don’t drink wine, women who drink infrequently, and women who drink beer or spirits. I’ll toast to that!
For more information on preventing osteoporosis beyond enjoying your Chardonnay, see the Osteoporosis Foundation website. Don’t forget, drink in moderation only (1 glass of wine a day at the most), and keep in mind that alcohol increases the risk of cancers such as breast cancer.
