I have just seen a press release titled Women Need More Calcium. This press release says that women should be taking more calcium, particularly calcium supplements, for good bone health. The press release refers to a study presented to the American Society of Bone and Mineral Research 27th Annual meeting,
, Nashville, Tenn. Sept. 23-27, 2005. The study provides no peer-reviewed evidence that taking calcium supplements reduces the risk of osteoporosis, and get this: the study was sponsored by Proctor & Gamble, a large pharmaceutical company that sells calcium supplements!
