There was a buzz in the halls of Seattle Grace Hospital on Grey’s Anatomy Thursday night as people were excited about the new resident. The only problem was that the resident wasn’t new, it was Leah Murphy, and she made her appearance with an awkward introduction to Dr. Robbins, who didn’t need an introduction.

The age of the waters was first identified by scientists in 2013, reports the National Post, when researchers ran tests in a mine near Timmins, Ont. and discovered that the water had been isolated from the earth’s surface for up to 2.7 billion years. This discovery suggests that the waters may contain organisms that, although not technically alien to Earth, could be similar to what scientists hope to one day find on Mars. The research team, made up of scientists from University of Alberta and McGill University, found that the waters contained far less of the element sulphur than was expected.

Cranberry capsules didn't prevent or cure urinary infections in nursing home residents in a study challenging persistent unproven claims to the contrary. The research adds to decades of conflicting evidence on whether cranberries in any form can prevent extremely common bacterial infections, especially in women. Many studies suggesting a benefit were based on weak science, but that hasn't stopped marketers and even some health care providers from recommending cranberry juice or capsules as an inexpensive way to avoid these uncomfortable and potentially risky infections.

These are the countries that guzzle the most wine per member of the population every year. Data from the Wine Institute found that the Vatican City is top of the wine-drinking league, with the average resident quaffing an impressive 54.26 litres every year. The diminutive nation has a population of less than 500 people but an older age group, an above average amount of ceremonial meals and a decent few glugs of communion wine means that their consumption per person is by far the highest worldwide. Another tiny European country – Andorra – comes in second place, where citizens see off a not insubstantial 46.26 litres annually. We’re a nation known for our ability to put away the booze, but the UK came in a pitiful 16th place. The U.S. consumes the largest amount of wine in total – more than three billion litres a year – but adjusted for population, that’s a mere 10 litres per person.
