Celebrity chef Pete Evans has advised an osteoporosis sufferer to stop consuming dairy products, saying 'calcium from dairy can remove the calcium from your bones'.
The advice appears to be opposite to the common medical direction that dairy products help protect against the disease, which results in brittle and fragile bones due to vitamin D and calcium deficiencies.
Evans gave the advice to a follower during one of his Facebook 'Q & A' sessions recently.

The woman wrote: 'I have been diagnosed with osteoporosis. My doctor insists that medication is the only way, can Paleo help?'.
Evans responded: 'I would strongly suggest removing dairy and eat the paleo way as calcium from dairy can remove the calcium from your bones' and provided a link to his website.
He added that 'most doctors do not know this information'.

But Evans was slammed by Endocrinologist and medical director of Osteoporosis Australia Professor Peter Ebeling.
He told The Daily Telegraph 'He shouldn’t be saying these things. It’s really bad and just not true.
'The keystone to preventing osteoporosis is adequate calcium intake and this is achieved by three (daily) serves of calcium-rich foods like dairy. Dairy is the most easily available source and has the highest calcium content in it.'
He went on to say Osteoporosis Australia would happily to work with Evans to make him an ambassador with the right message.
Evans recently caused controversy when he advised that sunscreen was filled with 'poisonous chemicals' and said his sun protection was 'generally nothing as I keep an all over tan all year don't stay out for super long periods in the sun'.
Other comments, such as those regarding fluoride and paleo diets for babies, have also drawn the ire of health practitioners and scientists.
