Researchers have come up with a cure for bone loss as they suggest that consuming vitamin D supplements and gulping dairy foods. Dairy foods such as milk, cheese and yogurt possess higher bone density as weel as protect against bone loss in the hip, which older adults usually go through. The research could lead to better care for people over 50 years of age diagnosed with osteoporosis — a disease characterized by low bone mass and progressive deterioration of bone tissue.  For those affected, osteoporosis can lead to increased risk of fracture, loss of physical function, decreased quality of life and even death, the researchers said. “This study is significant because in addition to milk intake, it also examined the association of other dairy foods such as yogurt, cheese and cream with bone mineral density and bone loss over time,” said lead author Shivani Sahni, from the Hebrew Senior Life`s Institute for Aging Research — Harvard affiliated medical care for elderly in US.”Furthermore, the study clarified that the association of dairy foods with bone density is dependent on adequate vitamin D intake,” Sahni added.
