Calcium is essential for girls during adolescence and the teenage years.

Why is calcium so important to girls and why aren't they drinking the milk they need to get the calcium?. Dr. Emily Senay takes a look.

((
Whatever happened to every body needs milk?
If you look around the food court these days ...it isn't milk that teenage girls are drinking.
And for young women especially it should be at least three times a day according to national dietary recommendations.
Milk is a major source of calcium and calcium is essential to their diets now - and later in life. girls who forgo calcium rich foods face potentially serious side effects. DR. BESS DAWSON HUGHES/TUFTS UNIVERSITY: THE IMMEDIATE CONSEQUENCES ARE THAT GIRLS ARE GOING TO HAVE MORE SHIN SPINTS AND BROKEN BONES WHEN THEY'RE DOING SPORTS...THE LONG RANGE CONSEQUENCE IS OSTEOPEROSIS.
According to a United States Department of Agriculture survey... teenage girls stop drinking milk at a time when they should be increasing their intake to prevent osteoporosis later in life.
Why do girls stop drinking milk? researchers say girls choose diet soda over milk because they are calorie conscious...but there are other reasons. I DON'T LIKE THE TASTE, I DON'T LIKE THE SMELL...IT DOESN'T FIT INTO MY SCHEDULE....I LIKE OTHER DRINKS."
Do young women realize that during their teens...there is a once in a lifetime window of opportunity to store calcium ? "NOT REALLY"..."NO"..."I KNOW IT'S GOOD FOR GROWING..."
Teenage girls need 12 to 15 hundred milligrams of calcium daily. an eight ounce glass of skim milk has no fat yet it contains over 300 milligrams of calcium...vitamin d and other essential nutrients...and only 80 calories.
But according to the National Institute of Health...only 8 out 0f ten girls are getting the recommended amount of calcium in their diets. WE'RE IN A TEEN MILK DROUGHT...MUCH LIKE A PLANT NEEDS WATER...GIRLS NEED MILK.
Calcium supplements and some fruits and vegetables are ways girls can get the calcium they need.
Girls who are preoccupied with their looks now...may want to consider the deforming and debilitating effects of osteoperosis later in life.

Finally, some people out there might just like this report.
A new study suggests that a mix of red wine and a piece of dark chocolate might be good for the heart.
(----------------)
VO-NAT


University of California researchers say chocolate contains high levels of phenolics (fee-NOH'-lihks).
That's the same anti-oxidant in red wine which, in moderation, has been linked to lower rates of heart disease.
The theory is that these chemicals help control bad cholesterol in the blood.
Unfortunately, some cardiologists aren't convinced-- stressing the theory is unproven.
