I was told that too.
I just read a book called 'The Whole Foods Guide to Strong Bones' by AnneMarie Colbin. \
My husband is of the 'must eat bucket loads of dairy' league so I have been reading material to counter his opinion as my children have decided that they no longer wish to eat dairy - he believes they will have brittle bones if they don't drink milk.....seems I am finding out the opposite.
Ms. Colbin goes into great detail about calcium, supplements, foods that contain the most calcium and allow you to absorb the most, those that diminish calcium supply and weaken bones, bone density and of course, the impact of excercise.She even talks about reversing bone density. There are some great recipes in there too.
Another read if anyone is interested, is 'Whitewash: The Disturbing Truth about Cow's Milk and Your Health.' by Joseph Keon. It is more on the political side but busts many calcium myths.
