Yogurt seems to be a good dairy choice when it comes to keeping bones strong,
according to a new study. Researchers compared dairy intake with bone mineral density in 4,300 elderly people. They found that yogurt (but not milk and cheese) consumption was linked to higher bone mineral density (BMD) and other markers of bone health. Those who ate yogurt daily had a 3 to 4% increase in BMD. Also, among daily yogurt eaters, women had a 39% lower risk of osteoporosis and men had a 52% reduced risk compared to those who didn’t eat yogurt. The yogurt eaters also did better on physical fitness tests.
