This study evaluated the relationship between vitamin C intake and bone fracture. 366 men and 592 women (mean age 75 years) were asked to complete a questionnaire on food habits. It was found that high vitamin C intake was associated with a reduced risk of fractures. These data suggested a possible protective effect of vitamin C on bone health in older adults. More details can be found in the study.
