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 link between dairy and bone disease. There's the correlative data showing the countries that consume the most dairy products have the highest instances of bone fractures and osteoporosis. And that cultures that have no history of dairy consumption have very low rates of these diseases.
Is it merely correlative? Is it the higher protein intake in general that is causing this? What about the more direct data showing that dairy causes the body to excrete calcium?
As I mentioned, I've been interested in aspects of a Ray Peat-style diet, but the heavy dairy focus has me hesitating.
Interested in all your thoughts!
