Although getting enough calcium is critical to building healthy bones, other dietary factors are also important.
For example, a large-scale study found that potassium, magnesium, and fruits and vegetables protect against osteoporosis.
Men and women who ate the least amount of these nutrients had the lowest levels of bone mineral density.
Potassium is found in high quantities in potatoes, skim milk, orange juice, bananas, and tomatoes.
Magnesium is found in high quantities in whole wheat bread, skim milk, cold cereal, bananas, orange juice, and fish.

In fact, food is one of human most valuable tools for maintaining inflammation balance. As the saying goes, give me an inspiring song-writer, I can sway the country; give a chef/cook, I can build or destroy any nation (Healthy-Wealth blogger says).
