Trisha Yearwood, a three-time Grammy winner and has 20 top ten singles, is the latest celeb to don the milk mustache. We’ve all been lead to believe by the dairy industry that getting calcium from milk will help build strong bones. But is it true?
There is a growing body of evidence that suggests that dairy consumption actually leads to osteoporosis and higher fracture rates.
- Countries with the highest intakes of dairy, Finland, Sweden and the United States, also have the highest fracture rates in the world despite having the highest intakes of dietary calcium in the world.
- The Nurses Health Study showed an increased fracture rate among women who reported the highest dietary intake of calcium primarily from milk and other diary foods.
- A study funded by the dairy industry also showed that post menopausal women who drank 3 glasses of milk for 2 years (1400 mg Calcium/day) lost bone at twice the rate as those who did not drink milk.
Dietary Risk Factors for Osteoporosis
It’s time to ditch the stash… if you’re looking for strong bones consume less animal protein, alcohol, caffeine, dairy, salt and carbonated beverages.
