Astounding advice

I was amused at the advice from NICE about prescribing bisphosphonates for post-menopausal over-65s (News, January 5). I wonder how many women over 65 are still pre-menopausal?

Is this yet another example of the absence of clarity of thought characterising so much of the Department of Health's policy during the last few years?
