Turns Out Milk Doesn't Do a Body Good

Looks like your milk mustache is all for naught .

A new study shows that calcium does not prevent osteoporosis or bone fracture; in fact, a diet high in dairy intake does a body wrong.

The study, published in the British Medical Journal, found that people over 50 don’t really get stronger bones by upping their calcium intake with supplements or guzzling more milk. In fact, those people were just as likely to get a bone fracture than someone who was abstaining from dairy.

“Dietary calcium intake is not associated with risk of fracture, and there is no clinical trial evidence that increasing calcium intake from dietary sources prevents fractures,” the study authors stated. “Evidence that calcium supplements prevent fractures is weak and inconsistent.”

This news supports what U.S. health officials have been telling Americans for a few years now — that there’s not enough evidence to recommend taking calcium or vitamin D supplements.

A similar study was conducted last year — which was also published in the British Medical Journal — that found that those who drank three glasses of milk daily were more likely to die of heart disease and cancer. Milk-drinking women were also more likely to sustain a hip fracture.

So, how about we ditch the milk and load up on calcium-enriched spinach and collard greens instead?
