1. My son eats a blended salad every morning(fruits, greens and nuts)and then a regular salad later in the day. So his absorption will be quite high.

2. Possible TMI- I've spent time teaching my kids to chew carefully and to be alert to undigested food in their poop as a sign to chew more. I never wolf my salads...it takes me at least 45 minutes to eat one(they are huge).

3. Some indiginous peoples whose calcium intake is very low have very little or no osteoporosis. I think this is a combo of low animal protein and no processed foods combined with high activity and sunshine.

4.Calcium is not the sacred cow(har) it once was. Many other vitamins and minerals are now known to be almost as or perhaps even more important than calcium to bone health. Vitamin D comes to mind. The RDA for calcium may actually be far too high for those comsuming a truly healthy, plant based diet.

Bummer, my 2 favorite books about food(The China Study and Eat to Live) are lent out. Otherwise I could provide some documentation.
