Calcium Supplements Linked To Increased Risk Of Death From Heart Disease In Men.
Nnci Hellich writing in USA Today reported on a study published in JAMA Internal Medicine that showed ” high intake of calcium from supplements is correlated with an increased risk of death from
heart disease, such as heart attacks, for men, but not for women.” According to the study’s lead author Qian Xiao, of the National Cancer Institute, “Although we observed an increased risk of death from heart disease in men, we cannot say for sure that it was a result of using supplements containing calcium.” Xiao added, “We need more studies to clarify this possible relationship and the underlying mechanisms.”
