Study shows how alcohol damages bones
Well, duh!! People get drunk, they

- fall down

- say stupid crap and get hit

- get into fights

- think they are bulletproof



I didn't need no stinkin' study to tell me alcohol causes broken bones....

ALCOHOL may do that, but despite having alcohol in it, beer is actually better for bones than Milk. The animal fats in milk break down the calcium in your bones faster than the calcium in milk can replace it.

I was given beer in the hospital (limited quantities) after each of my bone grafts for this reason. The AMA knows this, but the Dairy Lobby doesn't want you to know.

What About Cow’* Milk?
The same book devotes an entire chapter to reviewing the scientific evidence on dairy products and debunks the myth that they are necessary or even helpful, pointing out that the United States tops both the milk-consumption and bone-fracture charts and citing a Harvard study that showed that “women who drank two or more glasses of milk a day were at least twice as likely to break a hip or forearm.” Click here for a review of the science on dairy products and bone health. The authors note that as few as two glasses of milk per day have been shown to double a man’* risk of developing prostate cancer and that three-fourths of the world’* population does just fine on a diet free of cow mammary secretions. Click here for more information on dairy products and prostate cancer.
Our understanding of the goodness of dairy products is slanted by the media and politics. Read more here:

I refuse to read that! I like beer. I like milk. In my mind, they will always peacefully co-exist, and no amount of reality will be allowed in to change it.....

Hmm, interesting, I'm underage, way underage but if beer is better than milk then i'll sneak several sips there and here.




Don't worry, I'm not an idiot, I wouldn't drink anyway.
