      "Real knowledge is to know the extent of one's ignorance."
      - Confucius

      On January 29, 2014, Mother Jones magazine shocked the
      dairy industry and know-nothing pediatricians with this
      headline:

      "Milk Doesn't Do a Body So Good After All"

      Writer Kevin Drum reported a study that had been
      published in the journal Science:

      "Researchers followed people for 22 years to see if
      drinking milk as a teenager affected the rate of hip
      fractures during the study period. What did they find?
      ...it turns out that each additional glass of milk per
      day as teenagers was associated with a 9% HIGHER risk
      of hip fractures in men later in life. Drinking more
      milk had no effect in women."

      In our 21st century world, calcium knowledge is directly
      proportional to the sum of hundreds of millions of
      dairy dollars invested each year on school posters,
      magazine and television advertising, and brochures sent
      to medical doctors by milk marketing geniuses. The true
      face of common dairy knowledge is little more than a lie.

      One of the great mechanisms of mammalian life is the ability
      of the mother to nourish her young with secretions from her
      own mammary glands. In this manner, food, immunological
      protection, and thousands of other benefits and yet-to-be
      discovered blessings are delivered to infants of each species.

      Each formula for every one of the 4,700 (plus or minus) mammals
      is different. Human breast milk contains the perfect amount of
      calcium for the growing baby. Not too much, and not too little.
      Just the right amount.

      A 100-gram portion of human breast milk (3.5 ounces) contains
      33 milligrams of calcium. Human adults need calcium too, but
      human adults should not be drinking human breast milk. Let's
      compare the amounts of calcium contained in adult foods to
      the level of calcium in human breast milk:

      Calcium content of foods (per 100-gram portion)
      (100 grams is equal to about 3.5 ounces)

      Now that you have knowledge of calcium facts, can it
      be any clearer to you that there are quite a number
      of non-dairy food options containing calcium?
