Calcium has been cleared of any harm to the heart, according to a review of studies by researchers at the Mayo Clinic, University of California San Francisco, and both Columbia and Johns Hopkins Universities, and commissioned by the National Osteoporosis Foundation.
In the past decade, a few studies have raised questions about calcium and its ability to possibly raise heart disease risk or stroke. But, this review of 31 studies found that the evidence on calcium supplements does not support this connection and also confirms that calcium-rich foods are safe for heart health.
