  • SummaryChronic alcohol abuse is a risk factor for osteoporosis and sarcopenia, but the long-term effects of alcohol on the immature musculoskeletal system are less clear. The present investigation in growing rats was designed to determine the effects of alcohol consumption on body composition, muscle mass, and bone mass, architecture, and turnover.IntroductionFew studies have focused on the long-term effects of drinking on bone and muscle during skeletal maturation.MethodsAlcohol was included… CONTINUE READING
