The effect of alcohol on osteoporosis: A systematic review and meta-analysis

Light, moderate, and heavy drinking of alcohol may bump up osteoporosis risk.

This study compared the incidence of osteoporosis between consumers and non-consumers of alcohol by means of a meta-analysis. Researchers utilized data extracted from 6 studies. 

Researchers noticed that the greater the frequency and amount of alcohol consumed, the higher the likelihood for osteoporosis to occur. Individuals with alcohol consumption levels of 0.5-1 and 2 or more drinks per day were as 1.38 times and 1.63 times respectively as likely as non-drinkers to develop osteoporosis. This study highlights the detrimental effect of light, moderate, and heavy drinking of alcohol on bone health.
