On one of the days it says that dairy sources are the best sources of calcium. This is not true, because of the way animal calcium reacts in the body. Dairy calcium actually leaches calcium from the bones, it does not add to it. Look at the cultures that drink the most milk and eat the most cheese and you'll find they have the highest rates of osteoporosis, while those who eat/drink little or no animal calcium products have the lowest rates, if it exists at all. Same with any animal products - the cultures that eat the most have the highest rates of preventable dietary diseases. The best bet for strong bones is dark green leafy vegetables, especially when eaten with citrus, which helps assimilate the calcium to the body.
