In 2000, 41 Kiwis died directly from alcohol. By 2008 that number rose to 254. This has grown every year since and it is hitting the elderly now. This means we now have around one New Zealander drinking themselves to death every day. Tragic.
Modern coffee is very high in caffeine. The caffeine found in coffee is a dehydrating neurotoxic insecticide (the same as morphine and cocaine). There can be up to 180 mg of caffeine in a flat white. A one-gram dosage of caffeine if often fatal to most people.
I am not a fan of cow’s milk or dairy foods being a standard or main part of the diet. Dairy foods are certainly not necessary to get your daily calcium, protein and nutrition. I gave dairy foods up over 25 years ago with absolutely zero regret.
World Health Organisation statistics show the highest rates of osteoporosis all occur in those countries with the highest dairy food intake, such as the USA, Germany, the UK, Australia, NZ and the Scandinavian countries. It is always the same, interesting eh?
You cannot eat yourself sick and drug yourself well. It does not work like that. If you eat yourself sick then you HAVE to eat yourself well. That is why so many diseases that are killing us now are called 'Modern Lifestyle Diseases' (NCDs).
Don't be pressured into eating anything you don't want to eat. It is one of our greatest freedoms, the ability to choose exactly what we consume. We often forget how lucky and privileged we are. Make good healthy choices if you want healthy longevity.

Calcium is one of the most important and abundant minerals in the human body. The calcium in plant foods is far better absorbed than the calcium in cow’s milk as it has all the natural co-factors present. I gave up dairy 25 years ago and I have never looked back.
Your bone health is about far more than just calcium, magnesium and vitamin D. Vitamin D helps you absorb calcium, is fat soluble and the body stores it so it is available when required for calcium utilization. You do not need to take it at the same time in a pill.
