Calcium from food may be better for bone health

I have been waiting for this. Yes, okay, I’m a skeptic about taking fake versions of vitamins and minerals instead of getting them from our diets. So here’s this study–not massive, of course–that indicates calcium from natural substances affects estrogen metabolism in a way that may more thoroughly promote bone mineral density.

I predict we will see a lot more of these studies as we discover ever more substances to analyze, and as our ability to measure them becomes ever more sophisticated. It’s been well documented for some time that our vegetables have lost significant amounts of nutrition. And now as continue to investigate how important it is to get our nutrition from food, we will begin to see more and stronger connections in how our artificially enhanced soil, chemicals, and other abuses of nature are contributing to our ill health.

This can only be a good thing.
