Science! Drink For Your Poor Aged Bones

The healing power of booze is revealed:

Later in life, drinking one to two alcoholic drinks daily may curb bone loss — so much so that just a two-week break from alcohol hastened bone decline in women in a new study.

… In line with previously observed trends, the women in the study who drank more alcohol (up to two drinks per day) had denser hip bones than those who drank less (as little as half a drink per day).

No wonder my great-grandmother drank so much gin. I wonder if the unfiltered Pall Malls were equally beneficial.
