Calcium Intake on Bones

A new study finds that people who consume the highest amount of calcium do not lower risk of osteoporosis.

People who consumed the highest amounts of calcium did not have fewer bone fractures or cases of osteoporosis, a study published in the British Medical Journal finds. In a study of 61,433 Swedish women, researchers found that there are no significant bone health benefits to consuming more than 700 milligrams of calcium per day. On the contrary, those who consumed more than 1,137 milligrams of calcium per day had higher rates of hip fractures and similar rates of osteoporosis compared to those who consumed less calcium. Previous studies conducted in both the United States and Australia have shown similar results.
