The journal Arthritis Care and Research has published findings showing that women who regularly drink fat-free or low-fat milk experienced a delayed progression of knee Osteoarthritis.
However the findings also show that those who regularly ate cheese had an increased progression of knee Osteoarthritis.
The dietary information of 2148 individuals was gathered at the start of the study and the joint space of the knee was regularly measured via X-ray after 1, 2, 3 and 4 years.
It was seen that those who drunk more milk up to 7 glasses per week, the joint space width decreased.
No significant link was seen in men.
