Cover story: Poor nutrition and frailty can increase falls risk and older adults often do not consume enough protein, an important nutrient for muscle strength and function. Using longitudinal data from the United States Health and Retirement Study, a report in this issue examines the association between dietary protein and subsequent reported falls in older adults with a history of falls.
