All this time, experts claimed how calcium is extremely beneficial for bones. During the past few decades, people have been taught to drink milk and take calcium supplements for strong teeth and bones. Yet, the number of people suffering from osteoporosis is constantly increasing!
Actually, recent studies show that calcium is the main culprit in the case of inflammation. Any diseases with names ending with –itis are indicating inflammation of certain body parts.
Sinusitis is inflammation of the sinus, colitis is inflammation of the colon, arthritis is inflammation of the joints, hepatitis is inflammation of the liver, and bronchitis is inflammation of the bronchi. As you can see, they are all the same “disease and that is inflammation!
According to a study tracking 78,000 nurses, the more cow’s milk they consumed, the more bone fractures they experienced. Bone fracture rates are lowest in countries where daily and calcium consumption is lowest. There are numerous factors that can affect your calcium intake and whether the calcium is properly absorbed into the bones. If it is not properly absorbed, it may cause calcium deposits elsewhere.
Calcium in the wrong places
98% of calcium is found in the bones, 1% in the teeth and 1% in other tissues.
Calcium that is not deposited in the bones may lead to:Hardening of the arteries (arteriosclerosis)Brittle and fragile bones (osteoporosis)Calcification in the liver and kidneys (liver and kidney stones)Calcification in the brain (intracranial calcification)Calcification in joints (arthritis and gout)
Factors that contribute to calcium toxicity
Calcium toxicity is a complex problem. There are many factors that contribute on whether the calcium will be absorbed into the bones, or it will “run loose” in the blood and lead to calcification.
