Breakfast- 4 large Navel oranges
I came across a recent reference to the Fontana study of bone strength. Nature's food provides exactly what we need for a strong healthy body and this article and study supports this. Here are some excerpts:
- "...the team at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis found the vegans they studied had many of the signs of strong bones."
- "Fontana expected the vegans to have low vitamin D levels because they avoid dairy products, which are fortified with the vitamin. But in fact their vitamin D levels were "markedly higher" than average."
- "...the vegans had low levels of C-reactive protein, an inflammatory molecule that is becoming linked with the risk of heart disease, diabetes and other chronic disease."
