The general consensus is that alcohol’s high calorific and sugar concentration can lead to increased body fat and weight gain, which can worsen symptoms of arthritis.

However, a study led by Harvard University, suggested that drinking beer may protect against the condition.

The study, published in Arthritis and Rheumatism, found that women who drank just two to four beers per week had a 31 percent lower risk of developing rheumatoid arthritis, compared to woman who never drank.

Although a correlation between beer drinking and lower rates of the condition was observed, the researchers noted that studies of this nature cannot prove than drinking alcoholic beverages protects against arthritis.
