Here is a list of foods highest in magnesium per calorie according to nutritiondata.com
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:
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?

I hope this interview will raise some awareness in New Zealand. You are a greatly enlightened nation, but the influence of the mutton/lamb/dairy industries is very strong.
To Radha Sahar--it is very good to hear that you are receptive to these ideas. It is very encouraging to see your post here. From that I infer that there is a subculture of people in NZ who are equally tolerant of a new way of looking at dietary issues.
Sometimes we in the US and Europe get an impression that NZ is dominated by the prevailing Australasian mentality that people should eat as much meat as possible and that anyone who disagrees will be marginalized or strongly denigrated.
STAGES IN A SEARCH FOR TRUTH
Questions presented by TW are EXCELLENT. Two other areas of inquiry merit more attention. Ignoring facts does not make them go away.
DASTARDLY DAIRY PROBLEM.
Why do some dietary "gurus" give dairy a pass while ignoring the topic? How much - if any - animal protein is optimal or "safe" for humans? At times the issue is only a few keystrokes away as conflicts of interest abound. Anyone paid by McDonald's as a "consultant" may have trouble telling the truth about their offerings. E.g. Very high fat so-called "healthy" salads for starters. To protect the guilty, I'll not mention names. After all, Dean Ornish has done much good.
DOES "BART" TEST DESERVE UNIVERSAL ADOPTION?
Another frequently ignored VERY IMPORTANT topic
which must be no stranger to Veg Source readers
remains "brachial artery tourniquet test" ALAS.
At first blush Google shows 9,400 general hits
and over 20,000 hits from other search choices.
I see NO (ZILCH) challenge to Dr. Esselstyn on this discussion(s) on this fascinating topic
REPEATING FACTS AGAIN AND AGAIN MAY HELP.
"First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win." Gandhi (?)
"Alle Wahrheit durchläuft drei Stufen. Zuerst wird sie lächerlich gemacht oder verzerrt. Dann wird sie bekämpft. Und schließlich wird sie als selbstverständlich angenommen." Schopenhauer (?)
" All truth goes through three steps. First it is made ridiculous or is distorted. Then it is fought. And, in the end, it is accepted as natural. " Schopenhauer (?)

CJ have no fear, becoming a vegan will without doubt help reduce your blood pressure!
"...contrary to common belief, chicken has as much cholesterol as beef and is therefore, not a healthy food to consume. Thus, if you want to take care of your health, then a vegan diet is the best option for you."
There is also the real possibility, that as the decades pass, substances, "man-made" nutrients and supplements, or foods, newly discovered in the earth and found to be edible, will have the unique ability of allowing us to continue to consume moderate amounts of those foods that have, until that time, been found to endanger health and shorten our lives. The diet promoted by Dr. Esselystyn, won't be consumed by a large proportion of the human species, for at least another 100 years, because the junk food promoters, will not take these findings without a fight. even if it's a fight that, for a majority of humans, they'll eventually lose. After all, there'll always be many other non-junk-food areas, where children, the naive and uneducated, can be seduced into spending what money they have destroying themselves.
