Heal Thyself - Top 5 Calcium Rich Veggies

Calcium? Where do the COWS get calcium for their big bones? Yes... from plants! The calcium they consume from plants have a large amount of magnesium... necessary for the body to absorb and USE the calcium. Duh!!!! Who have you been believining all these years?

So your doctor tells you to drink more milk because you are lacking in Calcium and you don't want to get osteoporosis. Is that the best a doctor can do? They always recommend the common mans cure. Doctors are the biggest decievers in the biz. Always medicating, never curing. So here's the scoop on the top vegetables that will increase your calcium supply.

These should be eaten RAW and steamed to release and activate nutrients within the vegetbles. A small and growing number of studies suggest that lightly steaming food may actually increase the release of some nutrients, according to study leader Nicoletta Pellegrini, of the University of Parma in Italy. Try them in a salad or DOLO.

Health Risks from Drinking Milk

First, milk is for baby cows. Simple and utterly plane. No pun intended. Yes... milk is Mother Nature's "perfect food" ...for a calf... until it is weaned. Everything you know about cow's milk and dairy is probably part of a dairy industry MYTH. *ALL* cow's milk (regular and 'organic') has 59 active hormones, scores of allergens, fat and cholesterol. The calcium in cow's milk is basically useless because it has insufficient magnesium content (those nations with the highest amount of milk/dairy consumption also have the highest rates of osteoporosis. Proof? How about a controlled study of 78,000 nurses over a period of 12 years?

Milk can be thought of as "liquid meat" because of its high protein content which, in concert with other proteins, may actually LEACH calcium from the body. Countries that consume high protein diets (meat, milk and dairy) have the highest rates of osteoporosis. OK, I am done...Its time for cows to take a day off!!!
