This is a disgraceful announcement that is not only erroneous but downright harmful to peoples health. The research behind this report was funded by one of the worlds largest pharmaceutical companies (namely Merk) who have a vested interest in selling vitamin D and calcium supplements. The truth is that taking vitamin D and calcium supplements does not protect against osteoporosis on the contrary, such supplements increase the risk of osteoporosis. Unfortunately the AMWA has been hoodwinked and misled into making an announcement that is harmful to womens health. All the latest peer-reviewed research is saying that taking vitamin D and calcium supplements actually increases the risk of osteoporosis. For proof see the free ebook Osteoporosis Can Be Prevented.
