Dairy Does the Bones Bad

The problem is not the amount of calcium we consume, the problem is the source.

We have all heard our parents tell us that if we don’t drink our milk we will not develop strong and healthy bones. Little did they know that they were actually weakening our bones. That’s not a misprint; dairy has been proven for years to have a negative impact on bone density.

The old school belief on increasing bone density is to consume dairy products, which contain high amounts of calcium. Now America is one of the leading dairy consumers in the world, and yet we also have one of the highest levels of osteoporosis. Nevertheless the message they continue to send to the public is drink more milk and eat more calcium-fortified products.
