Stronger Bones 

When it occurs to me, I sometimes wonder why the drunken sorority girls we always see on TV and, sadly, in real life, who seem to be forever falling over, never break anything except a nail or glass or two. It turns out that alcohol may be the answer.

Alcohol consumption may protect womens' bones, according to a new study. Of course the effect is small and only for moderate consumption, so the above is just sarcasm, but it's an interesting new development. Osteoporosis is a costly problem (leads to man of those annoying 'I've-fallen-and-I-can't-get-up 911 calls), and potential new treatments would be lovely.
