Women need more calcium?

I have just seen a press release titled ‘Women Need More Calcium.’  This press release says that women should be taking more calcium, particularly calcium supplements, for good bone health.  The press release refers to a study presented to the American Society of Bone and Mineral Research 27th Annual meeting, Nashville, Tenn., Sept. 23-27, 2005.  The study provides no peer-reviewed evidence that taking calcium supplements reduces the risk of osteoporosis, and get this:  the study was sponsored by Proctor & Gamble, a large pharmaceutical company that sells calcium supplements!

Get this: dairy milk actually causes osteoporosis. New discoveries are revealing that dairy milk may be the biggest cause of illness in the world today. In fact all the latest research is saying that milk is the biggest dietary cause of disease. A new book, The Milk Imperative (, explains exactly why milk is so harmful to health and what you can do about.
