Chances are good if you ask your doctor about alcohol, consumption, he or she might reply with "one or two glasses of wine a day are good for you." Now, new evidence reports that beer is even better than wine for your body.

In an article posted on CNN, researchers say "one to two beers a day is good for your bones. Brew contains silicon, which is in very few foods and is linked to bone strength and health. Now that's something to consider before going for your next bone-density scan."

The article goes on to describe the benefits of beer versus wine as well.  Next time you restock your  beverage supply , why not add  some beer? It does the body good!
