The study, led by Tonya Orchard, an assistant professor of human nutrition at The Ohio State University, appears in the Journal of Bone and Mineral Research.Women with the least-inflammatory diets (based on a scoring system called the Dietary Inflammatory Index) lost less bone density during the six-year follow-up period than their peers with the most-inflammatory diets. This was despite the fact that they started off with lower bone density overall.Furthermore, diets with low inflammatory potential appeared to correspond to lower risk of hip fracture among one subgroup of the study â post-menopausal white women younger than 63.
