A slightly alkaline body chemistry, which comes from eating a lot of plant foods — vegetables, fruits, beans, whole grains, nuts and seeds, etc. — is required for good bone health. A diet high in animal protein results in an acidic body chemistry, which our bodies attempt to buffer by withdrawing alkaline minerals, i.e., calcium, from our bones.

Research has shown that diets too high in protein greatly increase the amount of calcium released from our bones and excreted in the urine. In a study on the effects of diets containing varying amounts of protein on the bones of women with osteoporosis, raising daily protein intake from 47 to 142 grams doubled the amount of calcium lost in their urine. This is one reason why vegetarian diets (both those that include dairy products and eggs as well as vegan diets) are associated with a lower risk of developing osteoporosis.
