Do you know what is the best source of calcium? Dr. Neal Barnard, one of the greatest experts in the world in the field of nutrition, answers in this video.
"Many people hope that dairy products, including cheese, will help protect their bones. And what they are thinking of course is that there is calcium in milk and so there is calcium in cheese too. That's true but it is important to remember: the cows don't make calcium. Calcium is an element, it's in the earth and so when grass grows from the ground, it pulls the calcium through the roots into the leaves and the cows eat the grass and the calcium ends up in the milk."
This video was realized during the International Congress VegMed 2018 in Berlin where Neal Barnard presented the speeches "Helping Patients Adopt Healthier Diets in the Hospital Room and Beyond" and "What about Cheese?"
This is a video of the web-tv Veggie Channel.
