Doctor: does drinking too much coffee increase the risk of a fracture?
Coffee is one of the drinks that can make the funnis’ fun. But often consuming coffee is often considered excessive and attributed to the risk of broken bones.
“I’m not worried. There’s no evidence of the increase of broken bones by coffee consumption, “Talk of Robert R Recker, director of the Osteopoosis center at the Center at Creeron University, Omaha quoted from the New York Times.
According to the result of the study involving over 61 thousand women in Sweden, Dr. Recker said that consuming four cups of coffee or more a heart is only linked to a slight decrepit of bone density. However, the studies are done for the past 20 years to mention that this has nothing to do with breaking bones.
Meanwhile, a study published in the journal Food and Chemical Toxicology concluded that consuming up to eight cups of coffee a day is also not associated with the risk of fractures.
“Is not associated with risk of fracture primarily on healthy adults with enough calcium, ” dr Reckter.
Thus, whether consuming coffee can reduce the calcium in the body? “Is indeed true. People who increase consumption of caffeine, then calcium in urinnya also increases, “imbuh Connie m. Weaver, a Professor of nutrition at Purdue University.
However, Weaver explains the more calcium that are lost during urination, the more the body also absorbs calcium from anywhere.
Whereas, for the needs of calcium in women and men differently. National Institutes of Health advise for women aged 51 to 70 years old consuming 1,200 milligrams of calcium per day. And for men of the same age are advised to consume 1,000 milligrams per day.
