Greater intake of fruit and vegetables is associated with a lower risk of osteoporotic hip fractures in elderly Chinese: a 1:1 matched case-control study.

​Osteoporotic hip fracture is less likely to occur in elderly men and women on diets high in fruits and vegetables.

This study investigated the connection between consistent consumption of fruits and vegetables and the risk of suffering from osteoporotic hip fracture in the elderly. Researchers collated and analyzed data on the fruit and vegetable intake and osteoporotic hip fracture hazard ratios of 1,292 elderly Chinese men and women.

The researchers found out that regular consumption of fruits and vegetables lessened the risk of suffering from osteoporotic hip fracture in both men and women. The findings of this study further strengthened the body of evidence that fruits and vegetables may play a beneficial role in bone health.
