Milk has always been associated with strong bones due to the high amount of protein and calcium in it. Yet reading it up on wikipedia,
A study published in The BMJ that followed more than 45,000 men and 61,000 women in Sweden age 39 and older had similar results. Milk consumption in adults was associated with no protection for men, and an increased risk of fractures in women. The risk of any bone fracture increased 16 percent in women who drank three or more glasses daily, and the risk of a broken hip increased 60 percent. It was also associated with an increased risk of death in both sexes.
My question is:
Why did this happen? Can someone explain the biological reason of this observation?
Even though milk really does provide large amount of calcium and proteins yet isn't is contradictory that the fracture rates increase?
This is the aforementioned study.
