IN THE NEWS: TOO MUCH CALCIUM INCREASES HEART ATTACK RISK BY 30% Osteoporosis remedies always seem to have a catch. Drugs from Big Pharma can lead to fractures. And now a new study says calcium can be a problem too. It comes from Mark Bolland. He’s a Senior Research Fellow in the Department of Medicine for the University of Auckland. He received the Sir Charles Hercus Health Research Fellowship. And he’s published 10 peer-reviewed papers. The study was published in the journal BMJ. Its objective: “to investigate whether calcium supplements increase the risk of cardiovascular events.” Bolland examined 15 trials in a meta-analysis. They were all randomized trials of calcium supplements with a placebo. They had 100 or more participants. The participants were at least 40 years old. And the studies had run for over a year. The study’s conclusion: “A reassessment of the role of calcium supplements in the management of osteoporosis is warranted.” Why’s that? Because calcium supplements were associated with a higher risk of heart attack. ASK ABOUT OUR BONE BUILDERS

Your immune system keeps you healthy and fights off illness, and these studies show that chiropractic might be a great way to keep it strong! 3.
