Estrogen does not increase bone density
Scientists from the University of St. Andrews in Scotland have demonstrated that women in their late teens and early 20s with higher levels of estrogen have more attractive faces. The reason is that estrogen inhibits bone growth during puberty. This is further evidence that estrogen acts to slow down bone grown and bone turnover, thus preserving valuable bone-making cells. (Source: Miriam Law Smith, et al, Univ. of St. Andrews, Scotland, News Release 20 Nov. 2005).
This research shows that bone density is protected when bone turnover is slowed down. Unfortunately, bone turnover is increase when you consume dairy milk, and this in turn erodes valuable bone-making cells, leading to osteoporosis.
