Correcting a typo (Re:plant vs animal protein)

Whoops. There was a typo (which a number of people kindly pointed
out to me today) in my post about plant-based proteins vs animal-
based proteins. Referring to hypercalciurea, which can lead to 
osteoporosis, I accidentally transposed "animal" for "plant"...
 > that clearly indicate that animal-based protein - particularly
 > those from soy - are not likely to result in this problem.
obviously, I meant to say that plant-based proteins do not 
contribute to this problem (when protein levels are reasonable).

For those who worry that a plant-based diet will not allow for 
enough protein (or iron, or vitamins or minerals), fear not. All 
essential nutritional elements (with the possible exception of 
vitamin B12) are available in abundance in a well balanced 
vegetarian diet. An excellent reference is the Position Paper on 
Vegetarian Diets of the American Dietetic Association, the largest 
and most well recognized professional group for dieticians and 
nutritionists. It is not a vegetarian group. Copies can be obtained 
from ADA at 216 West Jackson Blvd., Chicago, IL 60606-6995.
