Increased intakes of Carotenoids, important antioxidant pigments from plants, may lower the risk of hip fracture in older men and women, according to a 17-year study from the US. Of the individual carotenoids studied, Lycopene was found to have the greatest protective effect related to fewer hip fractures. The researchers from Tufts University, Hebrew SeniorLife, and Boston University, studied data from 370 Caucasian men and 576 Caucasian women with an average age of 75 participating in the Framingham Osteoporosis Study.
