Dear Dr B
I have written many articles on the need for women (and men) throughout their lives, but particularly in their youth when calcium is deposited in the skeleton, to have a high calcium intake from natural sources such as foods. The present information emphasises that it is not taking calcium per se that is potentially linked to heart disease, but that the calcium should be accompanied by a concurrent intake (or production) of vitamin D and an intake of vit K2 (as would be the case it a well balanced diet is used).
