  2. This is an incredibly important topic, and this one single issue is the number-one reason why vegans see such an enormous improvement in their health when they go vegan. I am not vegan because of food allergies, but I totally respect vegans and veganism. Here's the deal: it is incredibly toxic to consume calcium without magnesium.

The less magnesium you consume, the more toxic calcium is.
