A study I read (conducted by the dairy industry, oops) said that dairy protein is very acidic, and in order to counter that acidity and bring the pH up, the body uses calcium from the bones.
I don't recall that study mentioning destruction of osteoblasts (bone forming cells), but it was conducted a while back, and there may be new data now.
I wish articles like this would cite the original papers.
