 Increase Intake of Dairy Products to Three Servings Per Day to Offset Risk of Osteoporosis

A recent research has shown that nearly 43,000 cases of osteoporosis could have been prevented in Australia, if people had increased their intake of dairy products or at least added an extra glass of milk a day to their diet.

It is important to combine exercise along with calcium rich foods like milk and dairy products which positively influence bone density, according to experts.

The recommended dairy intake per day per person should ideally be three servings- where one serve is equal to 250ml of milk, 200g of yoghurt or 40g of cheese.

If Australians increased their dairy intake to just two serves a day, it could make a big difference to cut down the number of people who develop osteoporosis each year.
