Relation Between Milk Consumption and Hip Fractures

Most people believe if they consume more milk it is less probable to have a fracture, because their bones are stronger.

But there is a theory which says: When you consume milk, acidity in your body rise. To decrease this acidity your organism extracts calcium from the bones and they get less dense.

I've made a little research - what is statistics about milk consumption per country and what is the hip fractures rate in the same countries. Here is the result:

In the northern countries probability one to break her/his hip is higher because of the cold weather there.
