A high fat diet makes bones stronger..... rats at least:

Influence of high-fat diet from differential dietary sources on bone mineral density, bone strength, and bone fatty acid composition in rats.

Does anyone have the full study?  It would be interesting to see the different diets

Andreas - the abstract says that they adjusted for differences in bodyweight
