After re-reading MR's section on calcium in his supplementation for veg(etari)ans, I started to edit, in cronometer, Ca out of spinach and oxalate-rich vegetables. Also, I realized that calcium in tofu may not be there if the coagulant used is not Ca-based. So, my cronometer levels of Ca plummeted down. No kale here in Italy, only some is available and dried. And no fortified foods. What to do beyond pure supplementation? I was pondering, when the very obvious answer materialized in my mind. Very much obvious, but lost in the background mental noise. Water was the answer. I googled the calcium content in commercial mineral waters (those available in supermarkets), and there it is, a list with the top entries. The highest one, of a volcanic origin, contains 390 mg per liter. And that of course is very much available, being in its ionic form. Yesterday I went to the supermarket and made of stock of that water. Since I never drink less than 1.5 liters per day, that's already almost 600 mg of available Ca, about 60% of the RDA. In the summer I very often drink 2 liters and more, which will allow me to be consistently above the RDA, together with the other vegan food. Hope I won't have now to start worrying about too much calcium...
drewab posted a topic in Chitchathttps://nutritionfacts.org/video/coconut-water-and-depression/ Here is Dr. Greger's latest video in the world of nutritional science. Don't let the name 'Coconut Water and Depression' mislead you. Watching a video like this is profoundly disturbing on so many levels. Misallocation of research funds, animal abuse, misreporting of research, and much more. Take a look, but first a warning, you may find it disturbing.

Please consider: Public Health Rep. 1954 Oct;69(10):925-36. Medical aspects of excessive fluoride in a water supply. LEONE NC, SHIMKIN MB, ARNOLD FA Jr, STEVENSON CA, ZIMMERMANN ER, GEISER PB, LIEBERMAN JE. PMID: 13204526 [PubMed - indexed for MEDLINE] PMCID: PMC2024409 Free PMC Article http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2024409/pdf/pubhealthreporig00178-0039.pdf "A well-controlled 10-year epidemiological study of two population groups shows that excess amounts of fluoride in a water supply do not produce gross physical defects." "No significant differences between the findings in the two towns were observed, except for a slightly higlher rate of cardiovascular abnormalities in Cameron and a marked predominance of dental fluorosis in Bartlett."
