From the video it seems that Ware jumped about four feet in the air to defend a shot, landed 100% on his outside foot and his shoe stuck. In other words, his lower leg stopped while the rest of his body, carried by substantial momentum, kept... (more)

I'm wondering if anyone one here heard about meat and poultry leading to poor bone health from a loss of calcium? There are a number of studies showing animal protein causes a high excretion of calcium from the urine. I've spoken to another paleo... (more)

Ok, so I've evaluated this theory before and found a bunch of studies confirming that meat protein is definitely not bad for your bones. Basically, meat protein increases the calcium lost in urine, but it also increases the calcium absorbed in... (more)

With the acceptance of dairy products slowly growing within the community - as well as my own newfound interested in some of Peat's ideas - some questions have been nagging at me. For quite a while it's been clear that there is at least some... (more)

And the populations that consume the most leafy greens (and minimal calcium) are shown to have the least incidences of bone fractures and osteoporosis. Yeah sure Vitamin D helps but Vitamin K (found primarily in leafy greens, other green... (more)

What is the consensus on improving bone density and preventing leaching of calcium and other minerals from a paleo standpoint? What are the minerals that bone is comprised of? How important is magnesium? There is also a hot supplement of... (more)

Listen to Dr. Ron Rosedale talk about bones - it is very interesting. Calcium makes bones rigid, protein and collagen matrix makes them strong and pliable. EDIT: I listened to this interview and took notes: Our shells are not on the... (more)

I have only been doing this for one week, so far I'm loving it. I love the way I'm eating, the foods are great. I am excited to continue. I'm concerned about Calcium, being a woman it's important that I get what I need. So, supplements? ... (more)

Supposedly the reason why calcium supplements don't work is that the calcium goes into your arteries and may spark a cardiovascular event, rather than fortifying your bones for those suffering from osteoporosis. I wonder how many other... (more)

I'm just wondering if there were any other factors/lifestyle changes besides the introduction of grains that caused the decrease in height and weaker bones 10 000 years ago? To me, this is one of the strongest arguments for paleo because it... (more)

I think that the grain itself wasn???t as big of a factor in the shortening of the human population as it gets credit for on the Paleo boards. Being taller was an advantage to Grok and his HG buddies because taller people could run faster, jump... (more)

Honestly, I doubt it. The amount of stress these athletes put on their bodies cannot be reciprocated by any diet. And it's not very likely that he got to be a world class athlete (development, athleticism, etc.) in a malnourished state or any... (more)
