As said in another book, if you believe that bones are made of calcium, you have subscribed to The Calcium Lie . You're not alone. Most consumers and, surprisingly, most doctors, believe that bones are made of calcium.  In an article named "Building Strong Bones" on "Travel and Health", it shows you that it takes at least 18 other nutrients to build strong bones in addition to calcium (Ca).  I totally agree with author's point of view: low-acid eating and daily exercise are the best, most cost-effective ways to strengthen bone and reduce fractures.

This is an important book for those wanting an holistic perspective on osteoporosis. This condition is complicated and cannot be fully resolved just by taking a prescription medication, which has severe side-effects for many. The main premise of the book is that we need to bring into balance the acid-alkaline relationship. When we eat too many acidic foods, which the American diet leans heavily towards, we are creating chronic inflammation. This in turn stimulates more of the bone breakdown process rather than the bone rebuilding process...and that contributes to osteoporosis (low bone density, weakened bones). This book builds on that insight but recognizes that there are other factors, such as heredity, lack of exercise, other organs' malfunction, and the loss of estrogen, etc. Must read.
