“Healthy Diet” Sends Broken Bone Risk SOARING
If you’re going to break a bone, make sure it’s not your hip.
Nothing fast-tracks problems with mobility and mortality more than a hip fracture.
Fortunately, you can dramatically lower your risk of suffering from one of these debilitating and potentially deadly bone breaks.
Simply by IGNORING the advice of the latest “health experts” and following MY lead instead.
Anyone who has decided to ditch meat and become a vegetarian is setting themselves up for deficiencies in protein, calcium, vitamin D, vitamin B12, omega-3s, and more.
And, of course, many of those are the same specific nutrients your body needs for strong, healthy bones.
So it’s no wonder following a vegetarian diet can contribute to brittle bones that increase your risk of fractures.
Researchers recently took a closer look at this connection. They evaluated the risk of hip fractures in vegetarians/vegans, pescatarians (fish eaters), occasional meat-eaters, and regular meat-eaters.
Can you guess which group had the greatest risk of suffering a hip fracture?
That’s right: the vegetarian/vegan group.
This study also found that the fracture risk was NOT affected by body mass index (BMI).
In other words, the deficiencies caused by this so-called “healthy diet” were solely responsible for the increased risk of hip fracture.
If you read my articles regularly, chances are pretty good that you haven’t fallen into the meat-is-bad-for-you trap.
Animal products have fed us for millennia. They provide your body with essential nutrients you simply can’t get from fruit and vegetables (no matter how good for you they are).
Anytime you’re tempted to buy into the vegetarian hype, just remember that studies like this exist. Then thank the good Lord for your good sense to eat what he provided for you.
P.S. You can take steps to maintain strong, healthy bones no matter how old you are. Just make sure they’re the RIGHT steps. Because if you’ve been relying on vitamin D supplements to do the job, I’ve got bad news for you.
