After the last two days, I guess I should feel like a breast implant: “A new study suggests that beer is a significant source of dietary silicon, a key ingredient for increasing bone mineral density. Researchers from the Department of Food Science & Technology at the University of California, Davis studied commercial beer production to determine the relationship between beer production methods and the resulting silicon content, concluding that beer is a rich source of dietary silicon. Details of this study are available in the February issue of the Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture, published by Wiley-Blackwell on behalf of the Society of Chemical Industry.” Link.
(Terribly behind at office and life and human normalcy right now. Thanks to the TDE reader who bailed me out these past two weeks with BYCU items.)
