Why is it that nations with the highest rates of bone disease
disease also have the highest cheese and milk consumption rates?
The highest rates of osteoporosis are to be found in Denmark,
Holland, Norway, and Sweden.

The key to bone disease is not how much calcium you eat.
It's how much calcium you prevent from leaving your bones.

Why does calcium leave bones? There are 28 amino acids in nature.
The human body can manufacture 19 of them. The other nine are
called "essential." We must get them from the foods we eat.

One of those "essential" amino acids is methionine.

One needs methionine for many human metabolic functions
including digestion, detoxification of heavy metals, and
muscle metabolism. An excess of methionine can be toxic.

Methionine = C-5, H-11, NO, S

Methionine is a good source for sulfur. That's the problem.
Eat foods containing too much methionine, and your blood
will become acidic. The sulfur converts to sulfates and weak
forms of sulfuric acid. In order to neutralize the acid, in
its wisdom, the body leaches calcium from bones.

Animal proteins contain more methionine than plant
proteins. Let's compare cow's milk to soymilk:

Methionine in 100 grams of soymilk: .040 grams
Methionine in 100 grams of whole milk: .083 grams
Methionine in 100 grams of skim milk: .099 grams

Now, let's compare 100 gram portions of tofu to meat:
(All of the meat products are lean and without skin)

Silken soft tofu: .074 grams
Hamburger: .282 grams
Hard boiled egg: .392 grams
Roast ham: .535 grams
Baked codfish: .679 grams
Swiss cheese .784 grams
Roast chicken: .801 grams

In 1988, N.A. Breslau and colleagues identified the relationship
between protein-rich diets and calcium metabolism, noting that
protein consumption resulted in calcium loss. His work was
published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology.

A study published in the American Journal of Clinical
Nutrition found that animal proteins cause calcium to be
leached from the bones and excreted in the urine.

"Osteoporosis is caused by a number of things, one
of the most important being too much dietary protein."
- Science

"Even when eating 1,400 mg of calcium daily, one can lose
up to 4% of his or her bone mass each year while consuming
a high-protein diet."
- American Journal of Clinical Nutrition

"Increasing one's protein intake by 100% may cause calcium
loss to double."
- Journal of Nutrition

"The average man in the US eats 175% more protein than the
recommended daily allowance and the average woman eats
144% more."
- Surgeon General's Report on Nutrition and Health, 1988

"Consumption of dairy products, particularly at age 20 years,
were associated with an increased risk of hip fractures...
metabolism of dietary protein causes increased urinary
excretion of calcium."
- American Journal of Epidemiology
