Drinking milk prevents osteoporosis?

Drinking milk will not prevent osteoporosis (brittle bones).

People will always seem not convinced when I mention this to them.  After all, most of us grow up drinking formula milk believing that it gives us protein and calcium, and ‘nothing has been wrong’!

With advancement in technology, more Research has been done and whether you believe or not, yes, milk does not prevent osteoporosis and in contrary, it gives rise to osteoporosis!  So stop believing in advertisements by milk companies that drinking milk can prevent brittle bones….!  The elderly who consume milk every day thinking that it will help them build stronger bones will be misled and not take the right measures.

The American Journal of Public Health published a 12-year study involving over 70,000 participants that indicated women who drank two or more glasses of milk per day faced higher risks of hip and forearm fractures when compared with women consuming one glass or less per week.

Statistics from many countries also show that a lower intake of animal products is linked to a lower rate of osteoporosis.  On the other hand, countries with a high intake of animal-based foods, such as the U.K and U.S., have high rates of osteoporosis.
