Dr. Popper serves on the Physician’s Steering Committee for the Physicians’ Committee for Responsible Medicine in Washington D.C. Dr. Popper works for Whole Foods, one of the largest natural foods grocers in the world, as part of Rip Esslestyn’s team, charged with helping employees improve their health with plant-based nutrition and better lifestyle choices.

You are free to believe a plant-based diet is best, but I will heartily disagree. Grass-fed meats, pastured chickens and their eggs, fresh raw whole milk and it’s counterparts are extremely important to body function. The problem is, people eat junk meat from the supermarkets and deli’s thinking it’s the same thing. It’s not. Same with eggs – people believe store-purchased eggs are dandy. They aren’t.

I would venture to say your article on bone loss and osteoporosis would be better written if based on facts, such as the fact that raw fresh milk contains vitamins D, A, K and E – all of which are needed for bone health, along with the magnesium you recommend. However, things like calcium (also present in raw milk) and magnesium cannot be utilized properly without the fats to take them where they need to go.

I would recommend you read up on some of this at the Weston A. Price web site (and several others) to learn the truth about this fact. Read the book Know Your Fats by Mary Enig, Ph.D., and The Cholesterol Myths by Uffe Ravnskov. Well worth the effort it would take.
