    Very well written article, thank you!

  • Steve Wilson

    Yes very well written and particulary interesting article for me, a 47yo cyclist who’s just resuming after a tough 18 months off the bike, including 3 months on crutches twice in 2014, first with Spontaneous Osteonecrosis of the Knee then Transient Osteoporosis of the Hip. Get your Calcium and Vitamin D in one way or another folks, I’m sure there is a lot of sense in this!!!

    Note that most people with lactose intolerance can eat yogurt because the bacteria in yogurt convert the lactose to lactic acid. If you are lactose intolerant and sceptical, give a very small amount of yogurt a try; you will probably be pleasantly surprised.

    Resorption, not resportion. Sorption is chemistry jargon for adhesion of molecules to a surface.

      On it – and thank you!

    Cows milk is for cows. Like the article said ; nuts, seeds green leafy plants will give you all the calcium you need provided you eat enough calories.

  • Nicola – Women Who Cycle

    Good article. I’m a female cyclist in my late forties and take Vitamin D and undertake resistance training to combat bone density depletion. My mother has osteoporosis and I’m determined not to go the same way. I’m also going to have my bone density tested later this year and will use it as a benchmark for fire tests.

    “Based on a meta-analysis of prospective cohort studies, we found no overall association between milk intake and hip fracture risk in women, even at high milk intakes.”

    Dairy leaches calcium phosphate from the bones – why do you think the countries with the highest rates of dairy consumption have the highest rates of osteoporosis?

    If you want to increase your calcium and improve your bone strength stay off the dairy and drink almond milk instead- it’s so tasty (amazing in coffee)and is full of calcium, vitamins – has no cholesterol, pus or hormones

    But lets be real – do you really want to have a part in paying the dairy industry to treat innocent beings like that? C’mon bike riders you should have more intelligence and morals than that. “Man, riding a bike is like being free “- something the cows never get to experience.

    The article raises important points for female athletes, but there is no need to increase dairy intake. There is an abundance of other foods that offer quality calcium AMONGST other important vitamins and minerals. Eat some of tahini or a bunch of almonds and pepitas. Eat some greens. You get some much more out of them and you avoid consuming the breastmilk of a poor stressed animal. Bonus points for environmentalism. Everybody wins! Also – ride more mountain bikes to get them bone strength gains!
