Can increasing the prevalence of vegetable-based diets lower the risk of osteoporosis in postmenopausal subjects? A systematic review with meta-analysis of the literature.

High compliance with vegetable-rich diets may help guard against the onset of osteoporosis in postmenopausal women.

​This study investigated how the intake of high vegetable diets influenced the risk of osteoporosis in postmenopausal women. Researchers sifted through 10 studies with more than 14,000 participants.

Researchers found out that consumers of high vegetable diets were less likely to suffer from osteoporosis than rare or non-consumers of these plant foods. This study adds to the evidence that larger intake of vegetables may have a role in reducing osteoporosis risk in postmenopausal women.
