More in the line of propaganda leading you to believe that you need to cram more steak down your gullet and wash it down with a big glass of milk or the osteoporosis fairy will get ya. I like how the ads on the side are for weight loss. brilliant!



  • Well if vegetarians do have lower bone density, it's probably because "Obesity actually is considered protective against bone-weakening osteoporosis." http://www.buffalonews.com/lifearts/health/story/704672.html

    Vegetarians and vegans tend to be a lot lighter, and the heavier you are, the thicker your bones grow to support your weight.

    I think people who consume a lot of dairy have lower bone density. A lot of vegetarians consume extra dairy products.

    When I went mostly or a lot raw, my weight did not change but my size shrank. I'll assume I got denser, younger tissues perhaps denser bones.
