Just had a brief look at some reviews and even extracts from the book. All I can say based on that is "Wow!" I am very grateful to you for this. The graph of the incidence of bone fractures versus calcium intake with a number of countries as data points was very, very telling --- and the opposite of what we've been raised to believe in Australia anyway. I'm a bit of numbers person, so while I didn't find a new RDI in there (haven't got a complete copy yet, though), I was very interested in the fact that if I consume the same amount of energy from plants rather than animal-based foods I would get twice the amount of calcium anyway. I'll have to check my sums, I suppose... I seem to be losing a lot of weight on this diet (which I can't really afford to lose) so I suspect that if I get the energy intake right I just don't have to worry about the calcium, so maybe that's the point. Still hoping someone will come up with a revised RDI though
Before being diagnosed (just after Christmas), I hadn't really read a lot about the relationship between diet and disease. The relationship to weight loss, etc, sure, but not to disease. So I'm still starting on this journey and have a lot more to read and learn. To be honest, my brother had had a hard time with the disease, so initially I didn't feel I needed to read much more about it and had pretty much given up at first, but after getting my free copy of George's book through MS Australia and doing some other reading before that arrived I feel a bit better about it.
