Calcium Supplements are NOT your friend!
CBS This Morning May 24, 2012
How many of us ‘older’ women are advised to protect ourselves from osteopenia and osteoporosis with Calcium? Calcium comes in many supplement forms… please watch the CBS This Morning video from May 24, 2012. It is a real eye-opener! [please excuse the 30 second commerical preceeding the video]
If you read the front of a bottle of D3 supplement capsules, it says it ‘supports Teeth, Bone and Immune Health’. Wow! That sounds great! Right? Hold on, on the back of the bottle, close to the bottom and in smaller letters, it states that ‘this product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.’ Then, please explain why millions of people are adivised to take it to ‘treat’ osteopenia or osteoporosis?
Dr. Steinbaum says nutrition and weight bearing exercises are much safer for bone protection.
