9 Foods That Are Bad for Your Bones
The more salty you eat, the more calcium you lose. “Salt is known to cause excessive calcium excretion through the kidneys,” says Felicia Cosman, MD, an endocrinologist, professor of clinical medicine at Columbia University in New York, and spokeswoman for the National Osteoporosis Foundation. For maximum bone health, Dr. Cosman recommends moderating salt intake. “Keep it below 2,300 milligrams a day and you’ll be fine,” she says.
A study published in theAsia Pacific Journal of Clinical Nutritionin December 2019 found that Chinese men who had a habit of eating salty foods were more prone to osteoporosis, a condition that causes bone-thinning. A study published in the journalOsteoporosis Internationalin January 2019 found this association also for postmenopausal women.
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services cautions that if you have other conditions such as high blood pressure, you may need to limit salt further.
