Dairy and calcium have had “in a relationship” in their Facebook statuses for ages. They’re such a famous couple that they’re rarely mentioned without each other, gracing the cover ofad campaigns across the world and dietary recommendations in publications everywhere. They’re the Benifer of the nutrition world. Should we start calling them Dair-ium?
Not so fast. As it turns out, all the hype around their relationship is a carefully orchestrated PR stunt put on by their people to make them look like the perfect power couple. In reality, these two are so completely dysfunctional together that we think it’s about time that calcium’s friends got together and had a talk with her about the toxicity of this relationship.
You see, calcium is a powerful and important mineral that promotes bone and teeth strength while regulating heart rhythms, transmuting nerve impulses and promoting proper blood clotting. The high, acidic protein content, low vitamin content and sky-high sodium content ofdairy are just holding calcium back from shinning to the best of its abilities. It’s time to face facts, dairy is running with the wrong crowd and it’s time for calcium to move on to greener pastures … and by greener we mean plants.
