Do you drink beer?  Do you have knee osteoarthritis?  Read on.

University of Nottingham just released a study that shows people who drink more than 20 beers per week were 93 percent more likely to have knee OA.

3,171 men and women were studied.  The subjects were between 45- and 86-years old.  2000 of the people studied had been diagnosed with osteoarthritis, and over 1000 acted as controls.

The weekly drinking habits of the people involved with the study were scrutinized.  The findings showed that people who drink wine and spirits are less likely to suffer from knee OA than beer drinkers.

The findings are published in the journal Arthritis Research Therapy.
