Thank you! Report
Just found out that I have fractures on my spine!!! I have been complaining about lower back pain for years and no one was ever concerned about osteoporosis! I see a doctor at least 4 times a year. SparkPeople saved me! Using nutrition tracker showed dietary deficiencies. Brought those to the attention of my new doctor and I now finally know what's going on!! Stay healthy folks and fix those nutritional deficits! Report

I saw a documentary that says milk and milk products create an acidic environment in your body. To neutralize the acid your body takes calcium from your bone. Milk causes osteoporosis Report
Too much controversy for me. I drink two glasses of skim milk every day along with other sources of calcium including leaving the bones in tuna & salmon and eating lots of greens. Do what is right fr you. Report
got several ideas from the article. thanks Report
I've been reading up on osteoporosis foods and calcium supplements and this article lacks a whole lot of up to date information. I agree with some of the comments below, we should look for more thorough info. Report
Thanks for the info. Report
Seem like this article could be more thorough. Report
Not a very thorough article. Best to look for more information elsewhere - what about the role of soy, vitamins D and K, for example? Or some explanation - why salmon instead of tuna? Report
Has no one proof-read this article? Right after, if you can't have milk, it suggests ingesting milk and yogurt! I expect more rigor from SparkPeople. Report

What are options for someone prone to kidney stones from calcium. I was just diagnosed with osteoporosis and read some scary things about Fosamax side affects. Has anyone had success with Fosamax. My doctor wants me to take it, but not sure if the risks or possible side affects (broken femurs and disfigured jaw just to name a few) are worth it. I haven't read enough about osteoporosis to know how debilitating it can become over years. Report
I've read many studies that say to ditch the grains if you need bone density. The reason is that grains promote INFLAMMATION and take buffer from the skin first, then the bones, and last, the muscle. These studies say to get your calcium from green vegetables. So that's what I do.
