Booze Matters - Good For Your Joints

Good News
Good news everyone!

A study by researchers from the University of Sheffield has determined that drinking alcohol may help reduce the severity of rheumatoid arthritis, and cut the risk of developing the disease.

James Maxwell, a rheumatologist at the Rotherham Foundation NHS Trust, told AFP:

"We found that patients who had drunk alcohol most frequently had symptoms that were less severe than those who had never drunk alcohol or only drunk it infrequently"

X-rays showed less damage to joints, and blood tests showed lower levels of inflammation, according to the report, published in the journal Rheumatology.

There was also less pain, swelling and disability.

Needless to say, Nanny's anti drink lobby says that this is no excuse to go out and drink more.

Ahem...yes it is!

  1. Oh dear, once again, Nanny's little world starts to crumble around her.....Now, given that my GP tests my weight, bp, lipid profile etc etc when I go for my annual checks in order for her to keep writing out my life saving prescriptions, and all these tests are done in the name of "Health problem prevention" I wonder if she'll write me out a prescription for a couple of cases of Chateau Margaux per month....In the name of "Health problem prevention" of course:-)

  3. Indeed it is. :)

    These unfavourable (for Nanny) studies are becoming ever more frequent. Perhaps we should commission a TV programme "When epidemiology goes bad".

    After my heart attack I was advised that a small amount of alcohol daily (1 unit) had been found to help prevent a re-occurrence. So it seems that like with any other drug, you just have to take the correct daily dose.

    I find my nightly hot toddy does wonders for my sleep.

    I know two people with severe arthritis in their hands. One drinks Tennents Extra all day through the weekend (at a slow pace) and that allows him to get on with living life comfortably. He even manages to spend most of the day doing difficult and complicated DIY.

    The other doesn't touch booze and is obviously miserable and increasingly disabled.

    To quote Withnail and I: "I must have some booze. I demand to have some booze."

    Spot on!
