Dairy does not protect against bone loss during menopause transition

Dairy intake is not associated with improvements in bone mineral density or risk for fractures in women transitioning to menopause, according to a study recently published in Menopause.

Taylor C. Wallace, Ph.D., from George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia, and colleagues used data from the Study of Women’s Health Across the Nation to estimate the change in lumbar spine and femoral neck mineral density and the risk for bone fracture by the frequency of dairy intakes among across the menopausal transition.
