Soda Intake Increases Risk of Hip Fractures

A recent analysis published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found an association of soda intake with an increased risk of hip fractures in postmenopausal women. Using the Nurses' Health Study cohort, this questionnaire-based analysis found that for every additional soda there was a 14% increase in risk of hip fracture. This higher risk was for all types of sodas not just colas as indicated by prior studies.
