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.

But milk certainly does not contain too much phosphorus;

Which obviously is not the case
