Why do people suffers from Osteoporosis ?

This is an extract from a book by Prof Chang Jia Rui of Taiwan. He says .....

[It takes a lot of effort to write my book and some people are finding it hard to continue reading because I kept on saying things against modern medicine. Some people even say "you kept on stressing the point from the beginning that human bodies don't need chicken, duck, fish, meat, eggs, nuts, beans, oil, salt, sugar, milk, alcohol and processed foods. Yet, all doctors say that milk is a rich source of calcium. Who do you say that milk is not good" ? If everyone thinks that milk can provide calcium and is good for the human health, I will not go against that as long as everybody is happy.

But I have doubts about this. In the past, when old people tripped over, they didn't necessarily break their bones but today, primary and secondary school children tend to get a bone fracture very easily, if they fall. If drinking milk will supply a large amount of calcium, then it means people in the past drank a lot of milk and thus, their bone structures were better and didn't fracture as easily and today children don't drink enough milk and so, their bones tend to have an osteoporosis problem and fractured much more easily. This is not the way to address the problem.

Maybe the theory and the reality for drinking milk and the intake of calcium do not match. I am not trying to deny anyone's theory. I am just trying to help everyone understand the reality and hope that everybody will be healthy and happy.

Why doesn't drinking milk give us calcium ? Almost everybody knows that milk contains a large amount of calcium. But, both the fresh milk and the powdered milk have been processed by food manufacturers. Although it still contains a lot of calcium after processing, it actually contains lactic acidic calcium and this type of calcium can't be absorbed by the human body. This type of milk contains a lot of protein but they are actually dead protein that can't be used in the body and it will slowly turn into acidic toxins. When the acidic toxins in the human body accumulate to a specific level, the body cells can't live and the body will get sick. The body will release bone marrow to maintain normal cell functioning. The bone marrow contains a large amount of calcium, this calcium is alkaline and is used to neutralise the acidity in the human body. The more milk consumed, the more acidic the body fluids become and then, the more bone marrow is used to neutralise the acidity. This is why drinking milk doesn't increase the calcium level but actually decreases the calcium level of the body. Nowadays, some doctors and nutritionists encourage patients who have osteoporosis to eat a certain amount of ice cream everyday if they can't drink milk. They believe that calcium can be absorbed from ice cream like milk, but actually if we understand the above, then we should understand that ice cream is even worse than milk.

Modern people have a bad understanding of their diets. Most people like to eat acidic foods and this leads to a great loss of bone marrow in the human body. Test results show that if you take 02 individuals of similar bone tissue density and similarly diet habits, with one drinking a lot of milk and the other not drinking milk at all, then 02 - 03 years later their bone tissue density will differ. And, if one of them is a vegetarian and the other eats only meat and acidic foods there will be an even greater difference. The bone tissue density testing equipment used to measure this is a high technology product and it shouldn't tell a lie. When the bone tissue density is greatly reduced, it means you have osteoporosis. The less dense your bone tissue, the less elastic are the bones and this means when you fall, the bones are likely to break.

According to Japanese studies on bone fractures, the chances that a child today will break a bone is 06 times higher than in previous generations.

So, the simplest solution is to eat as many green vegetables as you can].
