Researchers say magnesium could hold the key to preventing one of the most preventable causes of disability in middle- and old age.

Washington D.C.: A study finds that men, who lack food rich in magnesium in their diet, are at an increased risk of fractures, particularly fractures of the hip. They would benefit from eating spinach, pumpkin seeds, yogurt and almonds.

According to researchers, magnesium could hold the key to preventing one of the most preventable causes of disability in middle- and old age.

“The findings do suggest that avoiding low-serum concentrations of magnesium may be a promising though unproven strategy for risk prevention of fractures,” said lead researcher Dr Setor Kunutsor from the University of Bristol.

Bone fractures are one of the leading causes of disability and ill health, especially among the ageing population, and increase the burden on the health care system.
