Calcium Supplimentation Linked to Heart Attacks
A new study shows that supplemental calcium can lead to an increased risk of heart attacks. This study found that heart attacks occurred 20-30% more frequently. It also points out that the so-called benefits of calcium supplements are uncertain and unproven. The doctor in the article urges women who are fighting osteoporosis to look to medication, not supplementation, to heal their bones. I propose that we look at real food first to heal osteoporosis, not big pharma.
