Greater intakes of milk & milk + #yogurt may lower risk for hip fracture in older adults #Framingham

The mean age at baseline was 77y (SD:4.9, range: 68-96). 97 hip fractures occurred over the mean follow-up time of 11.6y (range: 0.04-21.9y). The mean ± SD (servings/wk) of dairy intakes at baseline were: milk = 6.0 ± 6.4, yogurt = 0.4 ± 1.3, cheese = 2.6 ± 3.1; cream = 3.4 ± 5.5. Participants with medium (>1 and <7serv/wk) or higher (≥7serv/wk) milk intake tended to have lower hip fracture risk than those with low (≤1serv/wk) intake [HR(95%CI): high vs low intake: 0.58 (0.31-1.06), P = 0.078; medium vs. low intake: 0.61 (0.36-1.08), P = 0.071; P trend: 0.178]. There appeared to be a threshold for milk, with 40% lower risk of hip fracture among those with medium/high milk intake, compared to those with low intake (P = 0.061). A similar threshold was observed for milk + yogurt intake (P = 0.104). These associations were further attenuated after adjustment for femoral neck bone mineral density. No significant associations were seen for other dairy foods (P range, 0.117-0.746).

CONCLUSION:

These results suggest that greater intakes of milk and milk + yogurt may lower risk for hip fracture in older adults through mechanisms that are partially, but not entirely, due to effects on bone mineral density.

Yogurt and weight management: a review

Yogurt and weight management: a review | Yogurt is good for YOU | Scoop.it

A large body of observational studies and randomized controlled trials (RCTs) has examined the role of dairy products in weight loss and maintenance of healthy weight. Yogurt is a dairy product that is generally very similar to milk, but it also has some unique properties that may enhance its possible role in weight maintenance. This review summarizes the human RCT and prospective observational evidence on the relation of yogurt consumption to the management and maintenance of body weight and composition. The RCT evidence is limited to 2 small, short-term, energy-restricted trials. They both showed greater weight losses with yogurt interventions, but the difference between the yogurt intervention and the control diet was only significant in one of these trials. There are 5 prospective observational studies that have examined the association between yogurt and weight gain. The results of these studies are equivocal. Two of these studies reported that individuals with higher yogurt consumption gained less weight over time. One of these same studies also considered changes in waist circumference (WC) and showed that higher yogurt consumption was associated with smaller increases in WC. A third study was inconclusive because of low statistical power. A fourth study observed no association between changes in yogurt intake and weight gain, but the results suggested that those with the largest increases in yogurt intake during the study also had the highest increase in WC. The final study examined weight and WC change separately by sex and baseline weight status and showed benefits for both weight and WC changes for higher yogurt consumption in overweight men, but it also found that higher yogurt consumption in normal-weight women was associated with a greater increase in weight over follow-up. Potential underlying mechanisms for the action of yogurt on weight are briefly discussed.

Yogurt: role in healthy and active aging

Yogurt: role in healthy and active aging | Yogurt is good for YOU | Scoop.it

Yogurt consumption has been associated with health benefits in different populations. Limited information, however, is available on nutritional and health attributes of yogurt in older adults. Yogurt is abundant in calcium, zinc, B vitamins, and probiotics; it is a good source of protein; and it may be supplemented with vitamin D and additional probiotics associated with positive health outcomes. Aging is accompanied by a wide array of nutritional deficiencies and health complications associated with under- and overnutrition, including musculoskeletal impairment, immunosenescence, cardiometabolic diseases, and cognitive impairment. Furthermore, yogurt is accessible and convenient to consume by the older population, which makes yogurt consumption a feasible approach to enhance older adults' nutritional status. A limited number of studies have specifically addressed the impact of yogurt on the nutritional and health status of older adults, and most are observational. However, those reported thus far and reviewed here are encouraging and suggest that yogurt could play a role in improving the nutritional status and health of older adults. In addition, these reports support further investigation into the role of yogurt in healthy and active aging.

New findings do not support the hypothesis that higher lactose intake increases ovarian cancer risk

New findings do not support the hypothesis that higher lactose intake increases ovarian cancer risk | Yogurt is good for YOU | Scoop.it

Authors assessed the association of dairy food and nutrient intake with risk of EOC during 28 years of follow-up including 764 cases in the Nurses' Health Study (NHS) and NHSII. Cox proportional hazards regression was used to model the hazard ratios (HRs) and 95 % confidence intervals (CIs) for EOC across categories of dairy food or nutrient intake. They examined dietary intake in adulthood overall, as well as during premenopausal/postmenopausal years and high school. In analyses of the highest versus lowest cumulative average intake in adulthood, they observed a non-significant inverse association with skim milk intake (HR 0.76, 95 % CI 0.54-1.06, p trend = 0.05), a non-significant inverse association with lactose intake (HR 0.87, 95 % CI 0.69-1.11, ptrend = 0.22) and no association with consumption of whole milk, dairy calcium, or dairy fat. Similar risk estimates were observed for dairy food/nutrient intake during high school, premenopause or postmenopause. Lactose intake in adulthood was inversely associated with risk of endometrioid EOC (HR 0.32, 95 % CI 0.16-0.65, p trend < 0.001).

What’s So Great About Greek Yogurt? - Tufts University Health & Nutrition Letter Article | Yogurt is good for YOU | Scoop.it
Besides the Seahawks and Broncos, viewers of this year s Super Bowl saw two other fierce competitors: Greek yogurt brands, slugging it out in commercials. That would have been unthinkable only a few years ago--in 2008, Greek yogurt accounted for only 4% of US yogurt sales. But today Greek yogurt makes up 44% of the multibillion-dollar US yogurt market and is responsible for almost all the growth in this part of the grocery aisle. More than half of US households bought Greek yogurt last year, according to retail research firm IRI.
