Dr Hyman gives a great argument for removing milk from the diet.
It's amazing the response when you show people exactly how much calcium can be obtained from a vegetarian diet high in nuts, seeds and leafy greens. Calcium that is completely free of animal hormones, has good quantities of fibre thrown in the mix and generally will be promoting an alkaline internal environment.
The dairy marketing machine appears to have been quite successful in making many of us believe that dairy is the only source of calcium.

Seems like a choice between two evils then. However I think that when you have a clean body and strong immune system, drinking raw milk is not so dangerous, much like eating raw eggs. Only in a "natural" situation, finding a raw egg might prove less of a problem than milking that wild yak grazing nearby, which entirely proves your point of the "significant risk" of drinking milk from other species ;)
Anyway, my choice would be more like spinach juice, cheers!
Exactly. The choice is between two evils ONLY when one assumes milk must be consumed. There is usually a third choice, and spinach juice is definitely preferable! :-)
This is simply false. The Asian Audit first of all is not a published study. There's no peer review involved, so to put it at the same level as published studies which say the opposite is having very low scientific standards indeed.
The Asian Audit, to the extent that it's accurate, would seem to show a trend that as Eastern (but not African, as you claim) countries shift toward westernized, animal-based diets, their risk of osteoporosis increases. But this is well know, when Asians migrate to the US, they adopt the same risk as everyone here who is eating that diet. It's not genes, it's the animal food, low vitamin D, lack of exercise.
The point Dr. Hyman correctly makes is that increased consumption of animal protein, including from dairy products, leads to increased osteoporosis. I could give you a few dozen cites on that -- which were peer reviewed and published.
Great summation. Needs clarification on a few points, though. Calcium is not needed to build up human bones. Please read "Biological Transmutation" by Dr. Kirvran to learn how potassium, magnesium and silica-containing foods pick up hydrogen, oxygen and carbon in the human body and turn into bone calcium. Women should never take calcium supplementation. We spill calcium before having a heart attack because it does nothing except build up plaque inside our arteries and outside our bones. Alcohol is the most acid substance we can put in our bodies that is sold as a beverage. Spinach causes gallstones and because it is a selfish green, it will bind not only the iron in it to itself, but will rob the iron from other foods eaten at the same time. Annmarie Colbins "Foods That Heal" teaches more.
