Phosphorus and Osteoporosis
Some say that osteoporosis is due to excessive dietary phosphorus, increasing deportation of calcium from the bones.
Scientific research shows that in all countries where much milk is consumed, more people have osteoporosis.
It also shows that in those countries where milk consumption has increased, osteoporosis incidence has too.
But milk certainly does not contain too much phosphorus;
phosphorus in mg. / 100 g.
674 Brazil nut
618 Sunflower seed
607 Oriental sesame
590 Egg yolk
550 Soya bean
480 Goa bean
426 White beans
407 Chick pea
391 Rolled oats
373 Cashew nut
353 Lima bean
108 Dried fig
If this theory would be right, milk would be protective, compared to all other foods (except most fruits and vegetables).
Which obviously is not the case
