The authors said they were not certain why women who drank more colas had lower bone mineral density and not men.

In the study, men reported drinking an average of six carbonated drinks a week, with five being colas and women reported consuming an average of five carbonated drinks a week, four of which were colas.

"The more cola that women drank, the lower their bone mineral density was," according to the study. However, the researchers did not see an association with bone mineral density loss for women who drank carbonated beverages that were not cola.
