Okay, so there is this tie to drinking milk and preventing the bone disease of Osteoperosis. Is this like anything else, where you can do that to help prevent something but other life things besides milk are the way to help with Osteoperosis?

From what I know Osteoperosis happens because there's not enough calcium in the body, so I'm guessing if you don't want to try milk, you could try dairy products - yogurt, cheese and the like, or you could take calcium supplements. They usually come as an over-the-counter item, but if you want to be safe, you could check with your doctor. I've heard sushi's high in calcium too, but I'm not too sure about that one.

I have followed up with the doctor, it is just kind of one of those other people have been there and experienced it, so what are thos experiences that people have gone through. I want to know the ties between the 2 said subjects and the things that can be done to prevent something.
