Calcium: Should You Or Shouldn’t You Take Extra?

As many of you know, I can wax lyrical on the subject of calcium and why other elements are FAR more important to you for bone health. This is in my mind again as I have been asked about the issue of poor calcium intake on a dairy free diet a few times recently; a perennial question.

You can read some of my calcium-related posts here:

Osteoporosis – Not All About Calcium

Can Calcium Cause Heart Attacks?

There are many more if you use the search box.

I see Chris Kesser, a US nutritionist, was giving his take on it this week too, although I don’t advocate getting your calcium from dairy, favouring greens, nuts and seeds instead, and you can see my rebuttal of the calcium and cardiovascular disease study in the post I’ve included above – they used crap calcium basically.

Anyway, have a read if this is an issue for you:
