Background: The aim of this study was to compare bone mineral density among alcoholic, nonalcoholic and nonathlete subjects. Materials and methods: The group consisted of physically active people. A questionnaire was given to both alcoholics and nonalcoholics and 28 persons were randomly selected (15 members who consumed alcohol and 13 who did not). In order to collect the data on mineral aggregation, a testing device (DEXA) was used. The data were analyzed using SPSS software. Results: It was found that higher bone aggregation in each of the two athletic group in comparison with the nonathletic group (p < 0.05). Conclusion: Exercise may have a positive impact on bone mineral density.
