Salt, soda, caffeine: Could your daily diet be damaging your bones — even leading to osteoporosis?
Salt Is Bad for the Bone: Salt can pose a great obstacle to a sturdy skeleton. Research has found that postmenopausal women with a high-salt diet lose more bone minerals than other women of the same age.
Some Popular Drinks : Many soft drinks and certain other carbonated soft drinks contain phosphoric acid, which can increase calcium excretion in your urine. And nearly all soft drinks lack calcium. That combination spells trouble for women at risk of osteoporosis
The Cost of Caffeine : Caffeine leaches calcium from bones, sapping their strength.
