I agree that binge drinking is linked to bone loss. Whenever I have 4 drinks in a row (red wine) the next day I have sore bones, achy feeling. I now keep a journal handy with WARNINGS to myself before I go on to the next glass. These affirmations stop me from going on drinking. Also, my son is an alcoholic and was told by a doctor he could possibly have bone cancer. He is a binge drinker with severe pancreantitis and type 2 diabetes. He is 36 years old. True story.

This article is a pretty good reminder. Alcohol indeed disturbs the genes making your bones weak. A lot of people are actually aware of the effects of alcohol to the body particularly to the bones but not all heeded the call to stop.

Another good reason is that you get drunk and fall down and sometimes break bones. LMAO

One of the risk factors of bone loss is large alcohol consumption. It affects the absorption of nutrients in the body and it really is a threat to your bones and most likely it would lead to Fosamax bone fractures.

I didn't know about the bone loss part. It does also effect our heart, liver and skin.

Binge drinking is bad because excessive alcohol consumption has been shown to reduce the amount of healthy bones in your body by inhibiting your bodies natural means of growing them. If you have to drink any alcohol. Don't binge and just enjoy it moderately.

Alongside cigarette smoking, excessive alcohol consumption has also been long recognized as a major risk factor of osteoporosis. Prevention is better than cure as they, so it's best to veer away from these unhealthy habits early on to reduce the risk of osteoporosis. While there are available medications, bisphosphonates such as Fosamax have been linked to certain adverse effects. Visit http://www.fosamax-lawsuit.net for additional information.

Excessive alcohol consumption has already been proven to be detrimental to people's bone health. Although the benefits of alcohol are also well proven, it is important that it should be enjoyed in moderation. To know more check out this site. http://www.fosamaxfemurfracturelawsuit.com

Truly, it is known that osteoporosis risks can be reduced with lifestyle changes and sometimes medication. For people with osteoporosis, treatment may involve both. The National Osteoporosis Foundation reports that 10 million people in the United States currently suffer from this osteoporosis, while another 34 million are at risk.
