According to Natural News, the well-known author and supporter of the raw-vegan lifestyle David Wolfe (www.davidwolfe.com) states that, "Calcium does not build bones. This is one of the biggest misconceptions ever." He says that silicon and magnesium are the keys to increasing bone density. So, stop taking calcium and start taking silicon and magnesium to increase your bone density.
Foods that contain silicon include bell peppers, soybeans, leafy green vegetables, whole grains, alfalfa, beets, brown rice, rice bran, rice hulls, rolled oats, nettles, hemp leaf and horsetail. Be careful where you source your food from though, as most soybeans grown in the U.S. are GMO.
Magnesium is found in nuts such as cashews, almonds, macadamia and cacao. Foods like halibut, avocados, oatmeal, baked potatoes and spinach also contain magnesium. Make sure you are adding plenty of green leafy vegetables to your diet, as they are foods rich in magnesium. They are also a good source for calcium and silicon.
Raw chocolate and cacao are not only a great source of magnesium; they are also beneficial for the teeth, as chocolate destroys Streptococcus, an organism that causes cavities. According to David, the tooth's worst enemy is sugar; chocolate itself is beneficial.
David Wolfe's Superfoods:
David recommends including super foods and herbs in your diet by adding them (in powder form) to meals or by brewing teas with these beneficial herbs and foods. He recommends 1-3 capsules of silica from horsetail extract daily. The herbs and superfoods contain all the vitamin, mineral and protein requirements, glyconutrient requirements, essential fatty acid requirements, immune system requirements and more.
David's top super herbs include: vanilla bean, pau d'arco, cat's claw, chanca piedra, camu camu berry and horsetail.

A new study appearing in the journal Anticancer Research lays out the simple, powerful truth about vitamin D. A typical adult needs 4,000 - 8,000 IUs of vitamin D each day to prevent cancer, MS and type-1 diabetes, not the ridiculously low 400 - 800 IUs recommended by the U.S. government.
The new research was conducted by scientists at the University of California, San Diego, School of Medicine and Creighton University School of Medicine in Omaha. It is groundbreaking research, because it establishes the relationship between vitamin D dosage and circulating vitamin D levels in the blood.
This is a first. It is crucial information for the healthcare revolution that will be necessary to save states and nations from total healthcare bankruptcy in the coming years. Vitamin D turns out to be one of the simplest, safest and most affordable ways to prevent degenerative disease and sharply reduce long-term healthcare costs.
