According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (2013), nearly 30% of females over the age of 65 have been diagnosed with osteoporosis leading to complicating fractures. Calcium and Vitamin D are vital components for osteoporosis prevention. Dairy products, especially milk, are common in the American diet and even have a specific familiar campaign, "Got Milk?" to help educate the public on the benefits of milk.
Most Americans have the perception that drinking milk will give us strong bones, but is this true? Are dairy products, specifically milk, an effective dietary source to help prevent osteoporosis or could they cause more harm than good? Should we as a society be drinking more or less milk? Are there better dietary choices for calcium or should we all be taking calcium supplements? Please elaborate on your reasoning with your research.
