Hip fractures in men may be linked to milk consumption

Created: 11/19/2013 1:02 AM WHEC.com

Drinking a lot of milk as a teenager doesn't decrease hip fractures later in life - and actually increases the fracture risk in men.
 
A large new study found every additional glass of milk per day consumed during the teen years was linked with a 9-percent greater risk of hip fracture among men.
 
However, a woman's risk of hip fracture was not related to her teenage milk consumption.
 
Experts say the increased fracture risk may be partially influenced by a man's taller height.
