Eat that spinach (study on bones and vitamin K)

I'm cross-posting this because I had no idea where it help people the most but I know this is a major concern here, so maybe this is where it would do the most good.

This study showed that getting about 1000 mcg of vitamin K really helps the chemical reactions in the bone involved in bone loss.

I fouind this account at Medscape, and they pointed out that other studies had shown that low vitamin k is connected to hip fracture risk. So this gives a guideline for maximal levels of vitamin K. There's still a lot not known, but eat those leafy green veggies--spinach and cabbage strike again!

Trish: Interesting study. Medical community is getting there! Did you know that you need to keep your intestines "healthy", ie. good bacteria, for the body to make Vitamin K. Also, egg yolks and yogurt have Vitamin K. Antibiotics kill off K, so I imagine there is alot of k shortage in Americans, since there is so much antibiotic use.

need to check my facts here

but I think alfalfa tabs are chock full of vitamin K. Or was it chlorophyll. Just tossing it in there for those who aren't of the popeye mentality.

Fixing me a mess of beet greens for supper tonight. Been craving them for some reason.
