Although it's widely known that consuming large amounts of protein (as in products like, oh, milk) compromises bone strength, and also that most Americans eat way more protein than advised, here's yet another fresh study from The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism to confirm the correlation: "In this 2-wk study, decreasing dietary protein from ad libitum to RDA levels decreased net renal acid excretion, calciuria and estimates of bone resorption, suggesting that decreased U.S. protein consumption might reduce bone loss." Leafy greens like kale and collards are a great low-protein source of calcium and they're also rich in other nutrients. Just sayin'.
