I was just wondering about Osteoporosis. My aunt is near retirement and told me she is afraid of getting Osteoporosis since it seems to run in the family. We (and everyone else we know) has heard that you should increase your calcium intake to avoid this... hmmmm... a ploy from the dairy industry??? So of course, she has started eating a lot of dairy and taking calcium supplements (something she has never done before). In fact, I've also read somewhere that in those countries that have a dairy tradition, rates of osteoporosis are actually higher than in those countries that don't. I told her that I heard this, but like to come with some more concrete nutritional advice and information for her. Do any of you know anything about the subject?
