Yet another study has shown that impact, not dairy consumption, is the key to strong bones. In fact, researchers out of UC Davis found that the advent of farming, and particularly dairy products, had a small but significant effect on the shape of human skulls. “At least in early farmers, milk did not make for bigger, stronger skull bones,” Dr. David Katz said.
From the study results, the researchers concluded that hunters and gathers developed stronger jaws from chewing, while farmers ate softer foods. But according to what we’re taught today, wouldn’t all that calcium the farmers consume from milk offset their active deficiencies? I guess not.
