If you need another reason to drink wine then this article is worth a read. It suggests that a glass of wine a day can help to strengthen the bones. A study has found that drinking moderate amounts of wine can reduce the risk of osteoporosis. The study looked at 1,000 pairs of female twins and explored the relationship between diet and fracture risk. Dietary patterns were monitored and correlated to the number of broken bones. The results found that moderate wine intake was associated with higher bone mineral density. Other alcoholic drinks such as beer and spirits do not appear to have the same effect.
