Tequila may help strengthen bones, study finds

A study by the Center for Research and Advanced Studies in Mexico has found that tequila can help the body absorb calcium and magnesium, making bones stronger.

According to the Science Daily, the study found that fructose (sugar molecules contained in the blue agave, the plant of which tequila is made) help the rats to produce more osteocalcin, a protein found in bones.

The project leader, Dr. Mercedes López attributed the effects to an interaction between the fructans and the bacteria in the intestines, which allows the sugar molecules capture nutrients that pass through the digestive system and help transport them to bone cells.

Researchers hope to use the discovery to help patients with osteoporosis. For us though, it's a great excuse to host a Sangrita party. In addition to reducing inflammation and fighting the flu, the newly discovered effects of bones to improve bones virtually make beverages a superfood.

Man almost dies sleeping next to mobile phone

Man almost dies sleeping next to mobile phone

On March 22, Wiley Day, 32, of Alabama, United States , connected the cell phone to charge the battery in a fake extension plug, right next to his bed. This was his habit every night, when he used to follow his social networks before bed. Asleep, his metal necklace slipped from his neck, leaning against the pin of the charger that is placed inside the socket and, in this case, I was a bit exposed.
