Who Needs Calcium When You've Got Red Wine?

Great news from Down Under, at least for men.  From Wine Spectator:
According to an Australian study recently published by the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition, red wine contributes to stronger bone health in older men.
Ok, so it's only for men between 50 and 80, and it's worth noting that spirits and liquor actually decreased bone density in men (but not women, go figure!), but this is just one more arrow in my quiver of reasons to open a bottle of red wine as frequently as possible.  Of course, if you fall over because you drank too much red wine, all bets are off.
