Increasing dietary calcium does not prevent bone fractures, according to two meta-analyses published in the British Medical Journal. In fact, “Most people don’t need to worry about their calcium at all,” according to Mark Bolland, MBChB, PhD, an associate professor of medicine at the University of Auckland in New Zealand.
Taking supplements and multivitamins is a decision that you must make in conjunction with your health care professional. I do not sell or recommend dietary supplements and consider that to be outside my scope of practice. For years, I have personally subscribed to the belief that my nutrients should come from food, not vitamins. I choose each day to eat a variety of whole plant based food. My health has never been better. I haven’t had the sniffles, cold, flu or other ailments in years. I have strength, energy and stamina.

Increased Dietary Calcium Intake Not Linked to Fracture Prevention
Physicians Committee For Responsible Medicine, Breaking Medical News, October 1, 2015: Increasing dietary calcium does not prevent bone fractures, according to two meta-analyses published in the British Medical Journal. Researchers from New Zealand reviewed the existing literature to assess current calcium intake recommendations. The first examined controlled trials and observational studies on dietary and supplemental calcium intake and fracture prevention and found no consistent evidence showing calcium or dairy intake prevent bone fractures. The second meta-analysis showed a very modest increase in bone strength through increased calcium intake or supplementation; too small to suggest any reductions in fracture risk. An additional editorial called for more research to de-emphasize high intakes of calcium without the evidence to support them. The author recommends health organizations reconsider the evidence to produce more practical guidelines free from marketing bias and that minimize side effects.
