Summary of "Dietary Protein Intake and Falls in Older People: Longitudinal Analyses From the Osteoarthritis Initiative."

Literature regarding dietary protein intake and risk of falls is limited to a few studies with relatively small sample sizes and short follow-ups, which have reported contrasting findings. Thus, we investigated whether dietary protein intake is associated with risk of falls in a large cohort of North American adults.
