The continued but moderate use of alcoholic beverages has not been associated with risks that could aggravate the disease or lead to death. The survey was attended by about 16 thousand people.
Experts agree that further studies on this subject need to be done and that it is still too early to recommend the consumption of alcoholic beverages as a therapeutic resource.
Arthritis is an inflammation in the joints. Its first signs appear around the age of 30 or 40, which can be aggravated by age.
Women and people with obesity are the most affected.
There are three types of arthritis, they are:
- Monoarthritis: when 1 joint is affected;
- Oligoarthritis: between 2 and 5 affected joints;
- Polyarthritis: when more than 5 joints are compromised.
This disease is triggered by some risk factors such as genetics, infections of viruses or bacteria, and trauma or injuries suffered.
According to the Brazilian Society of Rheumatology, arthritis affects twice as many women as men.
