Re: Fascinating False Facts?

They were all false.  So sorry to let you down, Sidey.

Nancy, after reading your comment I did another search but I couldn’t find one site that agreed with you.

Was that post fun?  Should I do another like it in the future?

By the way, Kate & Viv: all haggis-lovers are now banned from this blog for being, well, haggis-lovers.*

*Another false fact.  I need the hits.**

**Or to be hit…I can never remember which.

    For you, Tilly, I’ll convert to meatloaf.

      I appreciate the sentiment 🙂 Do you know, I don’t think I’ve ever eaten meatloaf. Does it taste anything like haggis?

    Here you go:



    “Osteoporosis is caused by a number of things, one of the most important being too much dietary protein.”
    {Science 1986;233, 4763}

    “Even when eating 1,400 mg of calcium daily, one can lose up to 4% of his or her bone mass each year while consuming a high-protein diet.”
    {American Journal of Clinical Nutrition 1979;32,4}

    “Increasing one’s protein intake by 100% may cause calcium loss to double.”
    {Journal of Nutrition, 1981; 111, 3}

    “The average man in the US eats 175% more protein than the recommended daily allowance and the average woman eats 144% more.”
    {Surgeon General’s Report on Nutrition and Health, 1988}

    “Consumption of dairy products, particularly at age 20 years, were associated with an increased risk of hip fractures… metabolism of dietary protein causes increased urinary excretion of calcium.”
    {American Journal of Epidemiology 1994;139}

I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
