While I greatly appreciated this article, why the hell does it take decades to get out information that vegans have been writing about for at least the last 50 years?

Vegan doctor John McDougall has argued for the last “million” years that in America the problem isn’t too little protein but too much, since animal protein depletes the body of its calcium. And that’s what causes bone-density loss!

Better late than never, I guess!
