You will find it on the book sites. Info is within the video. Thanks to Marian Sutherland for this information. EnvirowatchRangitikei

Published on Aug 20, 2008 – If you believe that bones are made of calcium, you have subscribed to The Calcium Lie. You’re not alone.

Yet any basic biochemistry textbook will tell you the truth: Bones are made of at least a dozen minerals and we need all of them in perfect proportions in order to have healthy bones and healthy bodies.
