    Just the opposite-IF they do not take care-which they mostly don't.

    Hell No! Bone density requires calcium and Vitamin D.

    It depends on the diet. Don't have milk and dairy products. Take some borax and vitamin K2. Kale is a good calcium source.

    Well, calcium helps bone density, so if you still have milk, cheese & dairy, these contain calcium.

    There are some plants that have high calcium..  However many of them are also high on oxalic acid, which may affect calcium absorption.   The plants high in calcium are spinach, kale, mustard greens, collards, turnip greens, etc.

    You also need vitamin D to absorb calcium.   Vitamin D is mostly found in animal based foods (tho you can also get it from sunlight as well).

    A vegetarian is going to have a better chance than a vegan..  Since vegetarians can also consume eggs and dairy.

    It may also depend a LOT on how varied the persons diet is.

    I don't believe so. From what I know that actually could be one of the reasons many quit after like a decade or so.

    you would have to test every vegetarian out there since bone density also depends on gender,genetics, how old the vegatarian is and how good their diet is. Non vegetarians can also have varying bone density for the same reason. FYI your basic vegetarian eats dairy products so.....

    No, why would they.

    Definitely no. In fact more likely to have a lower density as a vegetarian diet, and especially a vegan one, will be considerably lower in calcium than an omnivorous one.
