Eating foods rich in carotenoids regularly may brighten a man's chances of avoiding hip fracture.
Fracture is more likely to occur in antidepressant users than in non-users of these drugs.
Adequate intake of vitamin C-containing foods may help guard against the occurrence of hip fractures in men and women.
Hip and non-vertebral osteoporotic fractures are less likely to occur in individuals who are habitual consumers of foods loaded with carotenoids, especially lycopene.
