Calcium supplements may raise risk of heart attack

Calcium supplements, which many people consume hoping to ward off osteoporosis, may increase the risk of heart attack by as much as 30 percent, researchers reported Friday.
These tiny tablets which carry concentrated doses of calcium were also associated with higher incidences of stroke and death, but they were not statistically significant.
The researchers advised people consuming calcium supplements to seek advice from their doctors, take more calcium-rich foods and try other interventions like exercise, not smoking and keeping a healthy weight to prevent osteoporosis.
"People regard calcium supplements as natural but they are really not natural at all," Ian Reid, professor of medicine at the University of Auckland in New Zealand, said in a telephone interview.

so by reading that it sounds like if you take calcium from natural sources you should be right

Yeh I go through about 1.5-2L a day, I heard it has a steroid effect (can't remember or find source) but then I heard it didn't. I dunno but I love my damn milk lol.

this goes for most nutrients. Supplements strip away the interactions they have when consumed as part of whole foods.
Plus it's easier to overdose on them (like crazy nutters taking mega doses of C tablets #facepalm )
