Dr. Miriam Bredella, a radiologist at Mass General, presented findings that reversed earlier ideas about risk factors for osteoporosis.

Sixteen years may not seem like much, but for retail businesses in Boston's competitive market, it's like dog years. Inspired by his post-collegiate tour of Europe, owner Chris Spagnuolo has created Panificio Bistro & Bakery, a place vaguely reminiscent of an English pub with its deep wood décor but with a menu that bears the mark of Italian and German influences. The clientele is neighborhood-y but also draws from the nearby Massachusetts General Hospital. "People come here to get their wives who just gave birth food and bring it back over there," chuckles Spagnuolo. After surveying the display cases, we quickly tuck to the tiramisu…
