Acid bad for bones, new study suggests

23-Oct-2000

Researchers are looking into the effect of acid produced by the body on bone health. Scientists at the University of California-San Francisco divided more than 9,000 women aged 65 years or older into five groups according to the overall acid load of their diet. They found that women in the most acidic group suffered hip fractures 3.7 times more often than those in the least acidic group during the study's seven-year period. Although too early to prove that a diet rich in meat and cheese is bad for your bones researchers will continue to investigate the theory.
