Calcium and womens' mortality

Recently, some studies have suggested that Calcium supplementation is associated with increase in heart attacks and strokes. However, this small study shows that Calcium up to 1000 mg/d seems to be safe in women. In my practice, I am recommending that patients with osteopenia or osteoporosis should try to increase dietary calcium, take 500 to 1000 mg/ day of calcium supplementation and perform weight bearing exercises.
