Osteoporosis is a particularly insidious disease that affects older adults of both sexes. Although the incidence is generally higher in postmenopausal women, anyone is potentially at risk. However, adding milk to the diet can help prevent the onset of the disease.
Add two cups of skimmed milk to your daily diet if you fall into one of the following categories: teenagers and young women who are perpetually on weight loss diets and who avoid milk because of its fat content; postmenopausal women or women who suffer from early menopause; people with eating disorders, especially young women who stop menstruating due to anorexia or bulimia; and men who have low calcium levels.
