Cows have strong bones, so why don't we?

(NaturalNews) Ever heard of a cow needing the bone drug Fosomax? How do cows get such strong bones? From eating lots of plants of course. Cows' milk is for a growing baby calf, but before the calf is grown, it is weaned from milk and moves on to eating grass. Big Ag, Big Pharma and their well-paid friend - the media, would have you think that milk and drugs are required for strong bones. American women consume an average of two pounds of milk and dairy products per day and yet some 30 million women have osteoporosis. Milk and dairy products in excess actually accelerate bone loss and the bone drugs are just causing brittle bones, more fractures and cancer.

Silent bone thieves

The main reasons we have weak bones is that cows' milk and pharmaceutical drugs (including over-the-counter drugs) have an acidifying effect on the body. When the body is acidic, it automatically pulls calcium out of the bones to neutralize acids. Cows' milk has three times more protein than human milk but when drinking cows' milk, a large amount of protein is converted into acids which actually leach more calcium from the bones than was in the milk in the first place. Pasteurize milk and 50 percent of the calcium is not even absorbed.

You can have the densest bones in the region and they can snap like dry twigs if there is no bone quality. Aside from acidifying the body, bone meds may improve bone density, but not bone quality. Long-term use of bone meds like Actonel, Boniva, Fosamax and Reclast have been linked to femur fractures after four years. The drug Infuse for bone growth causes cancer risk (including pancreatic) to shoot up by more than 250 percent in one year and 500 percent by three years.

With all the "cutting edge" osteo meds out there, osteoporosis numbers should be plummeting - instead they are rising...

Let's assume we need to fix our bone problems

If we just assume that we need to be concerned about bone health and treat our bones naturally, there would be no need for bone scans and osteo meds. It is our diet and lifestyle that has weakened the core structure of our bodies. There are many things that are critical to bone health - and drugs are not one of them.

In order to have and maintain healthy bones, we should get plenty of good water, seeds, nuts, leafy greens, beans, fruits and veggies in our diets. Even then, we still need weight-bearing exercise and plenty of raw sunshine for our bone health.

The mineral zinc has been shown to increase osteoblast (bone-building) activity, which is how the body manufactures bone. Zinc also inhibits the osteoclast (tearing down) process responsible for bone reabsorption and catabolism. According to the latest research, taking supplemental zinc directly improves bone mass for osteoporosis prevention. Make sure that the zinc you take internally is not zinc oxide.

Vitamin K works with fat-soluble nutrients to protect the brain from arterial calcification that leads to stroke and/or cognitive decline. Vitamin K helps prevent calcium deposits in arterial walls while allowing the body use of calcium for bone health.

Olive leaf extract can help lower the risk of developing osteoporosis. Studies found that it helps support bone strength and balance inflammatory responses.

Vitamin D studies show that it can support hip joint strength and integrity in elderly women by 69 percent while also improving muscle strength.

Bottom line

Bottom line, it is your health and your bones and a little common sense goes a long ways. If you are concerned about your bone health, avoid the pharmaceutical solutions that aren't working and do the natural thing.
