Lactose intolerance should in itself not lead to
osteosporosis. There are other (better) bio-available
forms of calcium than dairy. Nuts, seeds, green
leafies, seafood (ie sardines esp w/bone). Other
problems are lack of vit-d (ala sunscreen-itis), and
poor magnesium intake (american type diets, and
agriculture practices). Some Asian and Indian (East)
have little/no dairy and little occurance of osteo.
If you think about it until dairy farming humans DID
NOT drink milk into adulthood.
So, as Ana says, give the milk to the cat, and eat
your greens and trail mix ;)
