ABSTRACT
The article discusses research being done on the effect of high-dose calcium supplementation on the incidence of myocardial infarction (MI), sudden death and stroke. It references a study by M. J. Bolland and colleagues, published in the 2008 issue of the "British Medical Journal." Study researchers administered daily calcium supplements to 732 women and compared its adverse events with those who received placebo. They concluded that calcium supplementation may increase the incidence of vascular events.
