    Default The Very Common Supplement That Can Cause Brain Lesions (Calcium)

    Dr. Frank Shallenberger
    October 10, 2014

    For years now I have been begging people to stop taking calcium supplements unless they have a documented calcium deficiency. Twenty years ago, when almost all of my colleagues were prescribing calcium supplements to their patients to prevent bone loss, I was alone in preaching against them. My readers know this. But my lone voice hasn't made all that great of a difference.

    Even last week, I had a new patient who was taking huge doses of calcium that an "expert" nutritionist had recommended to prevent osteoporosis. Apparently, this so-called expert hasn’t read all the literature.

    To read the rest of the article go to:

    All quite true; however, the author does not go into the relationships within the body of Calcium with Magnesium, vitamin D, vitamin K, etc. The human body is so much more complex than "take this one", "avoid taking that one".

    Very true Maurya — the problem with these newsletters is the short format and chatty soundbite for the day which limits discussion of the very complex systems in the body.
