RAW FOOD proof - No need for dairy for healthy bones.

Top News Article | Reuters.co.uk: "ontana's team studied 18 strict raw food vegans aged 33 to 85. All ate a diet that included unprepared foods such vegetables, fruits, nuts, and sprouted grains. They had been on this diet for an average of 3.6 years.
The team compared them to 18 more average Americans. The raw food group had an average body mass index of 20.5, while the average group were slightly overweight with a BMI of 25.
BMI is an internationally accepted measurement of height to weight, and a BMI of 18.5 to 24 is considered the healthy range.
Fontana expected the vegans to have low vitamin D levels because they avoid all animal products including dairy. But in fact their vitamin D levels were 'markedly higher' than average.
Vitamin D is made by the skin when the body is exposed to sunlight and is key to keeping strong bones. It is added to milk and other foods because it is so important.
'These people are clever enough to expose themselves to sunlight to increase their concentrations of vitamin D,' Fontana said.
And 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.
Furthermore, they had lower levels of IGF-1, a growth factor linked to risk of breast and prostate cancer."
