More than ten years ago, the Harvard University Nurses’ Health Study, which had more than 120,000 subjects, found that consumption of milk and other dairy products DOESN’T actually protect against the bone fractures of osteoporosis. In fact, those in the Harvard study who drank 3 or more servings of milk a day ACTUALLY had a slightly HIGHER rate of fractures than women who drank little or no milk. And it’s interesting to note that societies with the highest intakes of dairy—the USA, England, Israel, Finland, and Sweden—ALSO show the HIGHEST rates of osteoporosis. While milk is a good source of calcium, green leafy vegetables, like spinach and collard greens are MORE POTENT sources. And beans, nuts, grains, and cruciferous veggies like brocolli and brussel sprouts, have plenty of calcium too! So don’t get get sucked into the milk myth, get your calcium in the vegetable section of your market!
