World Osteoporosis Day
October 20, 2015 in the World
World Osteoporosis Day is celebrated on October 20, 2015. World Osteoporosis Day is observed annually, and launches a year-long campaign dedicated to raising global awareness of the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of osteoporosis and metabolic bone disease.
Organized by the International Osteoporosis Foundation, World Osteoporosis Day involves campaigns by national osteoporosis patient societies from around the world with activities in over 90 countries. World Osteoporosis Day was launched on 20 October 1996 by the United Kingdom’s National Osteoporosis Society and supported by the European Commission.
Osteoporosis is a progressive bone disease that is characterised by a decrease in bone mass and density and that leads to an increased risk of fracture. In osteoporosis, the bone mineral density (BMD) is reduced, bone microarchitecture deteriorates, and the amount and variety of proteins in bone are altered.

National Brandied Fruit Day
October 20, 2015 in the USA
Brandied fruit is a scrumptious treat that is easy to make and can be enjoyed anytime of the year. Storing fruits in brandy is a simple way to preserve the wonderful tastes of the harvest season without the hassle of canning.
To make your own brandied fruit, all you need is ripened fruit, sugar, and brandy (the higher the quality, the better). Wash the fruit, peel off any skin, and slice if necessary. Fill half a container with brandy and add the fruit. For each cup of fruit you add, stir in 1/6 cup of sugar. Make sure all the fruit is submerged in the mixture, cover the container, and store it in a dark place. You can continue to add fruit at any time. Your brandied fruit will be cured after a couple of months.
Serve a spoonful of brandied fruit over ice cream, with a dollop of whipped cream, or as a scrumptious breakfast side dish!
