New Research on Rheumatoid Arthritis and Alcohol

A new study shows that alcohol could reduce the risk of rheumatoid arthritis.

Swedish researchers studied mice that were prompted to develop rheumatoid arthritis.

Some mice were given plain water, while others were given water that was spiked with 10 percent alcohol.

Researchers discovered that rheumatoid arthritis did not develop as quickly in the mice that drank the alcohol.

When it did develop, it was not as aggressive.

Before you start drinking to ward-off arthritis, researchers say the levels given to the mice would be toxic to humans.
