Drinking a lot of milk as a teenager doesn't decrease hip fractures later in life - and actually increases the fracture risk in men.
A large new study found every additional glass of milk per day consumed during the teen years was linked with a 9-percent greater risk of hip fracture among men.
However, a woman's risk of hip fracture was not related to her teenage milk consumption.
Experts say the increased fracture risk may be partially influenced by a man's taller height.
