Alcohol Reduces Rheumatoid Arthritis

Published torsdag 5 juni 2008 kl 10.00
The Karolinska Institute

New Swedish research indicates that people who drink alcohol are less likely to get rheumatoid arthritis.

The study, led by the Institute of Environmental Medicine at Stockholm’s Karolinska Institute, found that those with a moderate alcohol consumption were 40 to 45 percent less likely to develop the crippling disease, while the risk was reduced even more for those with high consumption.

The work has been published in the Annals of Rheumatic Diseases.
