About Arthritis and Calcium

Arthritic deposits contain a large amount of phosphates combined with calcium. This calcium has come from other bones in your body, such as the base of your spine and/or wrist. The bones are weaker in these areas due to the calcium that was actually taken out of your bones for the simple purpose of neutralizing the excess phosphate in your diet. It is important to reduce phosphate consumption (meats, solda pop, grains) by half, eating fish, vegetables and fruit instead.
