"What about Calcium? Don't we need to at least drink milk?" 🧂
This is another one of our popular questions. The general belief is that if we don't consume dairy products, we risk a calcium deficiency. We are told this by everyone around us, parents, trainers, doctors and of course advertisements as well. Many of us are scared to give up dairy for this reason.
But how true is this? 🤔
🩺The best available balance of evidence suggests that not only is Dairy unnecessary, but is actually linked to many Lifestyle Diseases including asthma, Parkinson's Disease and some types of Cancers
🌱We can get all our required calcium from plant sources. The two main groups are Greens and Bean (lentils). There are several sources of plant based calcium in India.
This post has some of them.
