Quote of the Week

"You know, you don't need dairy for calcium at all. When people say you need dairy for calcium, I ask them, "Where do you think cows get their calcium for those strong bones?" Well, the answer is, of course, green grass!

Green leafy vegetables have way more calcium than dairy has ever had, and our bodies can actually use it. The calcium in dairy can't be used by the human body, because the enzyme needed for that is killed by pasteurization."

Hey you! I just wanted to drop in and say hi and let you know I haven't forgotten about you. Sorry I haven't kept in touch. Things are soooo crazy right now.

I've heard the green grass thing before too!

I agree...we have all been much healthier since cutting out all milk. It is interesting too that most people rely on dairy for their calcium intake, yet the U.S.has the highest incidence of osteoporosis.
