Alcoholic preparations is one of the ingredients present in beverage s , drugs o r chemicals in common use even at pregnancy; and this is well acclaimed to be toxic to the concept uses, particularly , the developing skeletal tissues . A thorough literature search at MEDLINE and consultation with local scientific p ublications ,and text books on alcohol and bone development was carried out to compile useful information and to up-date knowledge on this subject . It is of great interest to note that this subject had been, and is yet receiving m uch and globa l attention from experimental, social and health workers ; particularly echoing the hazards of alco h ol abuse on developing tissues. This subject is an area of much and more consideration with the view to unveiling the mystery of the toxicity of alcohol while in search of therapy for its assaults and convincing means of abstinence for the addicts .
