Veg Diet is Good for Bones

According to a study in this month's British Journal of Nutrition, animal protein is associated with decreased bone health.

Bone mass was measured at the beginning of the study and at different intervals. Animal protein, especially from meat and eggs, was found to decrease bone mineral density and content.
