The new study specifically examined the effects of eating dairy products on the bone mineral density of the thigh and spine.
It is one of the few studies devoted to the effects of eating dairy products on a woman’s risk of bone loss and fracture during the transition to menopause.
When evaluating data from the Study of Women’s Health Across the Nation (SWAN), it was found that dairy products do not help protect bones in menopausal women.
The results of the new study were published in the “Menopause” journal.

Dairy products offer little benefit in terms of bone mineral density and bone fracture avoidance to women during the menopausal transition, when bone loss is accelerated.
Are dairy products good for your bones?
Do milk products protect the bones?
Dairy products provide more bone-boosting nutrients than any other food group, the researchers report.
Children are often advised to drink milk as it contains more than twelve essential nutrients that promote bone mineralization.
These nutrients include calcium, phosphorus, vitamin D and high-quality protein.
So it would be reasonable to assume that dairy products also protect women’s bones during the transition to menopause.
In women, bone loss accelerates as they enter menopause, which can lead to osteoporosis.
Since the two largest risk factors for osteoporosis (age and gender) are beyond the control of a woman, the search for modifiable risk factors is particularly important.
Such modifiable risk factors could slow down the irreversible, age-related, progressive, degenerative skeletal disease that makes women more susceptible to broken bones, the researchers emphasize.
What was examined?
In contrast to dairy products, regular exercise can clearly help maintain bone strength, the research team continued.
Activities that improve strength and balance, such as yoga and tai chi, can also help prevent falls, the researchers emphasize (as)
