Osteoporosis is affecting millions, men and women.

Some factors that Increase bone loss are:

1. Lack of weigh-bearing exercise.

2. Not enough vitamin D. This also contributes to breast, prostate, colon cancer and chronic muscle aches and pains. Over 1/2 the females and 1/3 the males in the USA have a deficiency in vitamin D.

Lack of sunshine and the inability to properly digest fats, all contribute to this problem.

Get into the sun for at least 2 or 3 times weekly for at least 15 or 20 minutes each. More if you can. People with RA suffer more and have their worst bouts in the winter if they live in the north, due to the lack of sunshine.

3. The increase use of carbonated cola drinks is associated with an increase in bone fractures and osteoporosis. (J. Adolescent Health 94;15;210-215)

A 12 oz cola has about 36 milligrams of phosphoric acid. This acid interferes with the metabolism of calcium. It also binds and removes certain minerals from your body. For every 36 milligrams of phosphoric acid extracts 36 milligrams magnesium. And you definitely need magnesium. Especially if you are over 55.

4. Drinking more than 2 cups of coffee or 5 cups of tea will leach calcium from your bones. If you exceed these amounts, make sure you’re taking additional calcium through supplement. (Am, J, Clin. Nutr. Oct 94;573-578)

5. Lack of fresh foods in your diet. Eat at least 75% of your daily food raw. After a month of this you will be writing me about how well you feel. If you suffer from constipation you will be whooping with joy.
