New Study: Increased milk intake does NOT protect against osteoporosis (but does promote ovarian and prostate cancers)

Here is a list of foods highest in magnesium per calorie according to nutritiondata.com
http://nutritiondata.self.com/foods-000120000000000000000.html

Green leafy vegetables, legumes and nuts and seeds are all good sources of both magnesium and calcium (and protect against osteoporosis and other numerous diseases), so you could consider eating more of these foods and reducing or eliminating your magnesium and calcium supplements.

If you still prefer to supplement, I would recommend taking Dr. Fuhrman’s supplements, or supplements that have a similar ratio of nutrients as the one recommended by Dr. Fuhrman. The nutrients and quantity of nutrients contained in Dr. Fuhrman’s supplements are based off research and are adjusted according to new finding in the medical literature.
Here is an article by Dr. Fuhrman in regards to supplementation and protection from osteoporosis: (Some of the links are broken)

I also highly recommend reading the following article about why certain vitamins and minerals are detrimental to health when consumed in an isolated form or in excess of human requirements:

You can purchases Dr. Fuhrman’s MultiVitamin and Mineral Supplement or just the Osteo-sun supplement (which includes only vitamin D, magnesium and calcium) from the following page:

Heart Disease and Cancer: Listen to Foremost Expert Tell How to Prevent Them

user-pic

I am very pleased to hear that Dr. Esselstyn is soon to report results from 250 heart patients, and look forward to seeing it published in a medical journal whenever it is accepted. I am wondering if all of the 250 patients are on his recommended diet, or if a percentage of these patients are in a control group consuming a different diet.
Does anyone have any additional information about this study?

Dr. Fuhrman is also planning on starting a heart disease reversal study next year through the Nutritional Research Project on either 50 or 100 patients consuming a high nutrient diet which includes modest amounts of nuts and seeds. This will be especially interesting to see the amount heart disease reversal when healthy fats from whole plant foods are added into the diets of people with heart disease.

Also does anyone have the reference for the study in regards to the autopsies of Papua New Guineans over the age of 60?
