My nutrition professor explained to us last week that diabetics tend to lose a lot of the mineral calcium in their urine; therefore, they need to make sure to get adequate amounts of calcium (especially through milk). We also discussed that diabetics may need to reduce their ANIMAL PRODUCTS. I asked her after class about milk being related to losing MORE calcium because of animal proteins promoting acidic conditions in the body resulting in more bone loss, calcium loss, etc. Then, I made a comment about the bioavailability of calcium in milk versus the availability in plants. She jumbled a few words together that I couldn't exactly follow, but basically she told me that calcium from milk is MUCH more available than in plants. She said that whatever place that I got the idea that calcium was more available in plants than in milk, it was probably from "some kind of animal activists." She suggested that I look up a peer reviewed research article that explains my case.
I am going to be looking for an article in my spare time, but wanted to check with you guys first. Do you know of any peer reviewed articles that could help me (and possible her!).
I cant help but be frustrated! lol
Peer reviewed studies?????? BWAHAHAHAHHA!!! I am pushing 60 and I can kick azz of "men" half my age! I have been veggie 30 years, and vegan 7 years, 80% raw atm. Like rawbert sez LOGIC,or better yet COMMON SENSE! So long as "professors" toe the Medical Mafia's line, they are in no danger of losing their prestigious jobs INDOCTRINATING the FAT, and ST000PIDS! Pasturized milk is DEAD TOXIC SLUDGE, and I haven't drank that crap in over 30 years also! A beer has more nutrition in it! It must be tough being surrounded by ignorant rednecks, who LOVE killing things, down there, eh Melissa?
