Beer is good for your bones

Beer is a rich source of a nutrient that can help prevent weak bones -- but it depends what type you drink, researchers at the University of California, Davis, say. Beer is a rich source of dietary silicon, which can help cut the chance of developing diseases such as osteoporosis, the researchers conclude.
But not all beers are the same and those containing malted brley and hops have higher silicon content than beers made from wheat. The research, published in the Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture, examined 100 commercial beers and their production methods.

I drink gallons of cheap grog and am fitter than a butchers dog. Pure cooking lager is a health tonic. I only feel rough on pongy ale. But when you look at the science you do see that nice golden lager is healthier than dark pong.
