  • SummaryAge-adjusted female hip fracture incidence has been noted to be higher in industrialized countries than in nonindustrialized countries. [...] Key Result When female fracture rates derived from 34 published studies in 16 countries were regressed against estimates of dietary animal protein, a strong, positive association was found. This association could not plausibly be explained by either dietary calcium or total caloric intake. Recent studies suggest that the animal protein-hip fracture association…Expand Abstract
