• I dislike this wording "absorbed all of her body’s bone calcium while she was in the womb." that's not possible.... "absorbed excess calcium", sure... but don't claim things that aren't possible...And by the way excess calcium (deposits in the wrong places...are mainly caused by lack of Vitamin K2) Here's a link for more info: https://www.todaysdietitian.com/newarchives/060113p54.shtml
  • @lise the powdered smoothie is considered an easy dieting food for many people. It's a 5 min prep meal...but the side effect of sunken jaw bone is not something that would cross most people's minds. Staying home during Covid-19 should be a wakeup call for people to eat more nutritious food and maintain their health. @megamiaow I love smoothies, but for them to taste good, there's a lot of sugar. I have them once in a while, but agree long term they're not very healthy.
  • @lise This was meant to be a reply...What did I click on?
  • I wouldn't call lack of fibre lack of nutrition but definitely unless you're taking fibre supplements, by increasing fibre you are increasing nutrients...
  • @m0m0 Autoimmmune conditions are caused mostly by not having enough gut bacteria (itself caused by not getting enough fibre to feed gut bacteria...no amount of probiotics can replace feeding our native gut bacteria with fibre (and not just once a day)...
  • @jayne Even if she was getting nutrition: such as following juicing fads and extracting nutrients from vegetables...It's not good for long term use...By not using your teeth to chew food you risk having sunken jaw bone in the future.... It's a known fact that if you don't use something you lose it...Applies even to bone structures such as our jaws... Such as gaining muscle after working out and then stopping the workout and losing all that work... No one should do this to themselves...
