What is osteoporosis and what it eats? Research scientists and hidden facts of the problem. Path to the prevention of osteoporosis.
Osteoporosis - is a systemic disease that affects the bones of the skeleton, accompanied by a decrease in bone density and strength, which leads to a higher risk of fractures, even with minimal trauma such as a fall from his superior height or lifting cargo weighing about 10 kg
Many pseudoscientists osteoporosis is associated with a lack of calcium in the blood, which leads, in their opinion, insufficient consumption of dairy products. But ... How then to explain the following fact? If you go to the WHO website and look at the statistics of osteoporosis, you will see that in the first places in Europe and the United States, leading the consumption of milk and meat. Completing the list of African countries, where the protein is traditionally made from soy, corn, and beans. In Africa, traditionally do not eat dairy products, most of them Africans to persistent intolerance!
Studies by Dr. Helen Linksviller the University of Wisconsin have shown a direct correlation loss of calcium from the bones as a result of the use of animal protein. Similar experiments were carried out and Mark Hegsted Harvard. Brief results of these studies can be summarized like this. The average American eats 140 grams of protein a day lost in the year 3% of calcium from their bones. By 50-60 years the average American, sticking with standard power, suffering osteoporosis. Daily consumption of 50 grams of protein does not cause leaching of calcium from bones. And the consumption of 95 g of leaching depends also on the amount of phosphorus from food. Note that the measurements were carried out only as a result of the loss of calcium in the urine, ie, He ignores the calcium that is deposited in the cholesterol plaques in the form of stones in the gall bladder and kidneys.
Leave until the protein, and see what else influences the leaching of calcium from bones. Animal foods contain about 10 times more phosphorus than vegetable. direct correlation loss of calcium from the bones in the excessive use of phosphorus was established. How does this mechanism work? For this purpose it is necessary to consider the topic of acid-base balance (AAR).
AAR term applied to aqueous solutions to liquids. As regards natural minerals, they got into the solution, or may be acid- or alkaline forming. There are trace elements that the blood pH is shifted to the alkaline side (calcium, potassium, magnesium, sodium) and elements which shift the balance to the acid side (sulfur, phosphorus, chlorine).
Our body maintains the acidity of each system, each authority within the strict limits, so that there can not exist the majority of microorganisms. In addition, it made constant fluctuation around a fixed value. Since the acidity of the blood ranges from 7, 35 and 7, 45 during the day.
After this information, let us remember that we are considering the impact of food on blood acidity. Now imagine that the blood was phosphorus. He shifts the acid-alkaline balance (AAR) to the acid side. The body tries to compensate by giving calcium from their buffer stocks - from the bones. Calcium binds phosphorus, the balance is restored. Chlorine and sulfur are give the same effect as that of phosphorus. Potassium, magnesium and sodium produce the same effect as calcium, magnesium and sodium but not in the body in the required amounts. Potassium can not perform buffer, because its deficiency in cells dramatically affect the viability of the organism. Therefore, calcium is used. Interestingly, this same mechanism of blocking calcium excretion via the kidneys, the body tries to maintain the buffer elements, and as a result, calcium salts are deposited in the kidney.
AAR To keep within the limits inherent to every mind, he just need to eat one food that does not break ballansa. Predators need to eat raw meat, offal and bones. Herbivore - grass and leaves. Man - vegetables, fruits and herbs. And the greater the deviation from the ring-road unit, the stronger moves AAR blood, the more the body uses internal buffer resources to restore the balance. And since we're in this chapter talking about osteoporosis (porous bones), the consumption of food of animal origin without due compensation unique herbs promotes leaching of calcium from bones. With regard to the additional receiving calcium, its absorption in the body is limited and slowed down as soon as it is found at the entrance to a large number. So welcome all kinds of gluconates and dairy products will lead to the opposite effect - everything is accepted, will go into the urine and stones, and what you are trying to compensate for the reception, will be offset by calcium from the bones. Here's a paradox.
