Osteoporosis

A starch-based diet can lead to acidemia which in turn can cause osteoporosis. Low animal protein diets in elderly omnivorous men and women result in bone loss, so it is little wonder this would be the case in carnivorous pets.

• “Intake of dietary protein, especially from animal source, may be associated with a reduced incidence of hip fractures…” Munger, R. G., et al. American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, 69 (1), 147-152, 1999.
• “…lower percent animal protein also was significantly related to bone loss…” Hannan, M.T., et al. Journal of Bone and Mineral Research, 15 (12), 2504-2512, 2000.
• “…A diet low in protein and phosphorus may have adverse effects on calcium balance…high protein foods do not cause calcium loss.” Spencer, H., et al. Do Protein and Phosphorus Cause Calcium Loss? The Journal of Nutrition, 28 January 1988.
