Cows Dairy increases bone risks does NOT strengthen them

And so another medical myth dies.

A new research study, this time published in the British Medical Journal, has looked at whether high milk consumption is associated with mortality and fractures in women and men. The study comprised two large Swedish cohorts (one with 61,433 women; the other with 45,339 men) who were followed on average over 20.1 years (females) and 11.2 years (males).

The results were clear. High cows’ dairy intake was associated with higher mortality in one cohort of women and in another cohort of men, and with higher fracture incidence in women.

The study went on to state that the negative effects of milk and dairy are associated with D-galactose. “Experimental evidence in several animal species indicates that chronic exposure to D-galactose is deleterious to health and the addition of D-galactose by injections or in the diet is an established animal model of aging.”


Ed: We have long warned readers that the usual recommendations of doctors as women aged, to ‘Drink more milk to get calcium and prevent osteoporosis’, was wrong. One helping of greens per day provides ample calcium. Instead consuming high levels of cows’ dairy reduces plasma magnesium and vitamin D levels – both of which are essential for getting calcium into bones.
