My 36 yo niece has osteoporosis and she does not eat red meat. Uric acid may very well be a contributor to osteoporosis but it most certainly isn't the primary cause.

Yeap i've taken fish oil for years but only eating fatty meat helped on the issues of super dry skin, hair and lips etc. especially in the winter as it's already about 15% humidity and running the heater at night really brings out the dryness.

I'm also a meat eater by the way, I'm not a vegetarian by any means. The point of the post is that for those who suffer from osteoporosis, need to reduce the animal protein intake and increase deep green leafy vegetables intake, as well as cereal grasses like wheatgrass and micro-algaes. My post is pointing out that the main reason for osteoporosis is the excess of uric acid whic primarily comes from eating animal protein.
There's many reasons for osteoporosis as it's not just because someone eats meat (lol). There's many studies of mostly meat eating hunter gatherer's who've been dug up by anthropologists in Europe, Africa and here in North America who showed no signs of osteoporosis or dental caries when examining them as they usually show blunt force trauma from their rough lives going back some 30,000 years and beyond.

Many of us don't or can't eat wheatgrass or other grains that you eat and do well on meat and vegetables and out in sunshine have no osteoporosis problems.

Alright, still missing the point, but Okay. By the way, I'm very well aware of WAPF and all those studies.
By the way, this problem is a lot more common in women then men.

I'm talking about Uric acid, and you keep bringing up eating meat.

Well i've only brought up meat as your op mentioned that consuming Animal Protein as a link to high uric acid levels which may cause osteoporosis and so i just wanted to point out that could be many causes and not just consuming animal protein however i failed to mention that you stated an ''over consumption'' as i have to admit that i should have read it properly so i #$%^ up and so lets now agree to sip on some green tea for our good health
