Milk intake and risk of mortality and fractures in women and men: cohort studies

Bottom line–this study published in the British Medical Journal shows that consuming milk is not going to prevent bone fractures and can likely cause inflammatory disease (cardiovascular). Fermented milk is more beneficial.

What this study adds

  • A high milk intake in both sexes is associated with higher mortality and fracture rates and with higher levels of oxidative stress and inflammatory biomarkers

  • Such a pattern was not observed with high intake of fermented milk products
