New research published in the British Medical Journal indicates men and women over 40 who take calcium supplements increase their risk of heart attack by 30%, compared to people who don’t take the supplements. The study points out that often, people take calcium supplements hoping that this will reduce their risk of breaking bones, even though in actual fact, taking more calcium only reduces bone fractures by a marginal amount. Baron and coauthors caution that the benefit of reducing bone fracture risk by taking calcium supplements may be outweighed by the likelihood of increasing heart attacks.
