Drinking milk and strong bones

The main thought process that we have when drinking milk is that it's going to strengthen our bones because of the calcium.

Studies suggest that drinking milk could help bone density but only in the span of two years. Moreover, there is a correlation between drinking milk with higher bone fractures and early deaths.

MORE IDEAS FROM THEARTICLE

There are different researches where the problem or causation and correlation are brought up with drinking milk. The current weight of evidence suggests that it is still OK to continue to drink milk if you like it. It most likely has benefits that attribute to bone health but it may just be short lived rather than what we expected.

We can also keep our bones strong by taking in vitamin D - either through the sunlight or supplements - and getting the right amount of exercise.

The Error in Isolating Events
  • Many studies have been conducted regarding the psychological impact of a one particular event, like the trauma associated with the ongoing health crisis, or sudden job loss.
  • What researchers fail to gauge is the complex psychological experiences of various events and situations that are of different hues and colors, and happen simultaneously.

A normal person leading a full life can experience events related to death, family changes, job changes, health issues, and financial swings. Each experience is connected to the other experiences and is not isolated, making the impact on the person varied and complex.
