The analysis showed that the risk of hip fracture was the highest in women with a combined intake of both vitamins, exhibiting an almost 50% higher risk of the condition compared to the women with the low intake of both vitamins.

The authors write in their paper: “Although we acknowledge the limitations of our cohort design, the findings herein add to the body of literature that suggests caution should be used in vitamin supplementation when there is no apparent deficiency.”
