Again, the study published in the American Journal of Epidemiology said the risk of middle-aged people who like to drink beer kidney stones decreased by 40 percent compared to those who did not drink at all. Yet it can be found, which component causes the beer to be magic to ward off kidney stones. But this discovery is clearly beneficial.

Harvard study found that middle-aged women who diligently drinking beer proved to have better mental function and denser bones.
