Popular calcium supplements 'can increase heart attack risk by 86 per cent'
An estimated three million people in the UK suffer from osteoporosis and many are prescribed calcium to curb the bone-thinning condition. But a study of 24,000 people aged between 35 and 64, whose health was tracked for 11 years, found that those who took the supplements had an 86 per cent higher risk of a heart attack.

Calcium needs to be supplemented with magnesium in order to avoid heart and other problems.

Ouch, I took cal supplements for 7-9 months. (working outside, dehydrated, cal helps prevent cramps.)

None of it works if we dont stop the bone loss. Like putting air in a leaky tire. Stop the leak first!

And many cal sups are just coral or oyster shell bio-unavailable rocks that cause problems.

Oh yes, animal meats are saturated of animal hormones and they put the blame on proteins.

Good study!

Idiots shouldn't be allowed to do studies.

#1 This so called 'study' is entirely based on a questionnaire where people had to remember their diets and supplement usage for more than a decade. If you can do this, then you have a better brain than I have. I'm lucky if I can remember what I ate two days ago.

#2 People who have had health scares are more likely to take supplements.

Sure why not Cal/mag. I heard calcium lactate or citrate was most bioavailable. Hi doses are hell on the kidneys.

On the other hand, read these comments about these new once/month bone drugs sally field is so ootsey about.
Boniva and the rest just read these patient experiences and warn everybody you know:
