Drinking beer could help prevent weak bones
"Beer is a rich source of a nutrient that can help prevent weak bones - but it depends what type you drink, claim researchers at University of California, Davis, today.
"As one of the nation's favourite tipples, beer is a rich source of dietary silicon, which can help cut the chance of developing diseases like osteoporosis, they conclude.
"However, not all beers are the same, with those containing malted barley and hops having higher silicon content than beers made from wheat.
"Some light lagers made from grains like corn have the lowest levels of silicon while beers made from hops seem to come out on top, according to the study. The research, published in the Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture, examined 100 commercial beers and their production methods."
