A new study discovered that milk doesn’t really protect against bone fractures and may even be causing early death.
This may go against everything you know from years of TV advertising but more and more experts now want you to ditch milk in favor of this drink that has way more benefits and no side effects.
And what do they suggest instead? Yogurt
The British Medical Journal debunked the widely popular idea that milk is good for your health, especially to protect yourself against hip fractures and broken bones. As it turns out, this isn’t the case. The group tracked more than 100,000 Swedish women and men for 23 years and discovered that regular milk consumption didn’t reduce the threat of bone fracture, worse the analysis learned that enthusiastic milk drinkers were much more likely to expire at younger age range than their counterparts who drank little to no milk.
Uppsala School, the Karolinska Institute and the Swedish Country wide Food Company tested the favorite suggestion of milk consumption for a much better health and have developed inconclusive proof on milks impact in reducing bone fracture risk.
The Swedish researchers tested 17,252 women and learned that drinking milk didn’t appear to decrease the threat of obtaining bone fracture.
A lot more concerning is the consequence of the analysis that reveals “avid milk-drinkers were 93% much more likely than their counterparts to die during the analysis.” Those that drank at least 3 glasses of milk each day were 90% much more likely to pass away of coronary disease and 44% much more likely to pass away of cancer weighed against women who drank significantly less than a glass of milk per day.
The effects although not at that high rate were similar in men.
Professionals suggest already government approved alternatives like yogurt, cheese and other fermented milk products as alternative. On this list, yogurt emerges as the best in terms of nutrient content and added health benefits.
C Mary Schooling, a public health epidemiologist at the City University of New York wrote an editorial on the issue. She said the milk may “help people live long enough to have children (and help this trait spread) but they might not help people survive into old age.”
“The role of milk in mortality needs to be established definitively now,” she added.
