Soda May Raise Risk of Fracture

Posted: 04.7.2015

 A recent study showed that drinking soda may increase the risk of hip fracture in post-menopausal women.  Each daily 12 oz. serving of soda was linked with a 14% increase in hip fracture risk, even after accounting for activity levels, weight and other factors.  Results were the same for all types of sodas; regular and diet, cola and non-cola, and those with caffeine and those without.  This supports previous studies linking soda to lower bone density in adolescents.  The study doesn't prove cause-and-effect, only an association, so more research is needed to confirm the findings.
