While recovering in the hospital a few years back from a bone graft in my right hand (5th metacarpal), the hostpital actually gave me a couple beers a day to promote bone growth.
The animal fats in milk actually DETER bone growth at a faster rate than any calcium could overcome. This is not common public knowledge, as the Dairy Lobby is second in strength only to the NRA.
In other words, Milk is actually bad for bone health in some ways, and beer may actually be better for you.
And that'* all I gotta say.
