Several studies have demonstrated that alcohol consumption can decrease bone density and alter its structure. However, most of the studies did not investigate the effects of specific alcoholic beverages. This study determined the effects of chronic consumption of cachaça (a Brazilian beverage containing alcohol) on body weight (BW), tibia bone density and… CONTINUE READING
