Anti-inflammatory Diet May Reduce the Risk of Hip Fracture in Women

A new research, conducted by the scientists from the Ohio State University, suggests that an anti-inflammatory diet can reduce the risk of bone loss in some women. As a rule, an anti-inflammatory diet is rich in healthy fats, plants, and whole grains.anti-inflammatory diet

For the study, the team of researchers investigated data from the Women’s Health Initiative study and compared the levels of inflammatory nutrients in the women’s diets with the bone mineral density levels and fracture incidence. These data were taken within the period between 1993 and 1998. Having analyzed the given data, the scientists discovered that women who ate more inflammatory diet were almost 50% higher risk of hip fracture.

Tonya Orchard, the lead researcher and an assistant professor of human nutrition at the Ohio State University, says: “[Our study] suggests that as women age, healthy diets are impacting their bones. I think this gives us yet another reason to support the recommendations for a healthy diet in the Dietary Guidelines for Americans.”
