Wine drinkers were less likely to develop arthritis If you need a reason to reach for the bottle, this might be it. Scientists have found drinking five or more glasses of wine or beer a week can halve your chances of developing rheumatoid arthritis. About , Britons have rheumatoid arthritis – a degenerative inflammatory disorder in which the immune system attacks joint tissue, leading to swelling, tenderness and increasing disability. For the research, participants were asked how much they smoked and drank.
Blood tests were taken to establish genetic risks. Among those who drank regularly, those with the highest consumption of more than five units a week were up to 50 per cent less likely to develop the disease. The biggest benefit was seen among some smokers who had a genetic risk of developing the arthritis. Smoking is known to be an environmental risk factor. Although more work is needed to explain the link, it is thought alcohol suppresses the immune system and damps down the inflammatory process behind the condition.
But researchers said the findings were in those with early signs of the disease and they could not recommend existing sufferers start drinking to alleviate their symptoms. Dr Henrik Kallberg of the Karolinska Institute, in Stockholm, led the research, published today online in the medical journal Annals of the Rheumatic Diseases.
He said “not a huge amount” of alcohol appeared to have an effect. Share or comment on this article Most watched News videos.
Five glasses of wine a week ‘could cut risk of developing arthritis by half’
Flint The creation of tools utilizing the natural environment is what distinguishes man from animal. What was once created using stone, wood, and bone has, over the centuries, evolved into metalworking and modern-day plastics. But it is the earliest tools, those carved from stone, which allowed mankind to conquer the natural environment and to prosper. Holding this flint arrowhead in our hand, delicately carved to a fine point thousands of years ago, we are holding the nascent breath of civilization.
Tools allowed mankind to utilize his natural setting to its fullest potential, to altar the surroundings to suite his needs, and to create his own collective habitats that would eventually evolve into great cities. An arrowhead head like this one, when tied securely to a wooden shaft, could have been used to fell a fleeing prey or to spear a fish.
