Milk linked to higher fracture and death risk

This study was led by researchers at Uppsala University and published in British Medical Journal. Since we were kids, we've been told drinking milk would make our bones strong but a new study suggests too the risk of bone fractures, and early death!

Swedish researchers tracked dietary data of adult men and women, including their milk and dairy consumption. Women who drank three or more glasses of milk a day had a higher risk of fracture and death than those who drank less than one glass.

Men also had a slightly higher risk of death, mostly from cardiovascular disease.

But consuming other dairy products, like cheese and yogurt, actually reduced fractures and mortality by 10 to 15 percent.

Experts suspect D-Galactose, a sugar found in milk but not other products, may play a role in these findings.
