Re: Calcium intake and bone mineral density: systematic review and meta-analysis
Given the important findings and conclusions reached in this and previous papers on the subject, is it fair to imply that the old age recommendations of official national and international bodies regarding required calcium intake (1000-1200 mg per day) are outdated, and ought to be updated accordingly?
What would the preferred recommendation be?
Finally, what is meant by "Increasing calcium intake...(is unlikely to lead to a significant reduction in risk of fracture)" - increasing from what amount?
