Osteoporosis! The first of a handful of studies, from the British Medical Journal, looked at more than 34,000 older Swedish. Researchers collected a bunch of data on the women’s drinking routine during the entire study for a decade, and then followed up with them.

Throughout the study, about 200 of the women developed rheumatoid arthritis. Further analysis revealed that women who drank more than three glasses of alcohol per week were 52 percent less likely to develop rheumatoid arthritis and osteoporosis, compared with women who said they drank no alcohol.

The results were the same whether women were drinking beer, wine or liquor.
