Research reveals the deadly dangers of excess calcium

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Death By Calcium Warning(NaturalHealth365) Millions of unsuspecting dairy product consumers are led to believe that drinking cow milk and eating calcium rich dairy foods will help to prevent osteoporosis. Sadly, the health claims made by the calcium supplement and dairy industry are predicated on lies.

Most factory farm dairy products come from cows that are genetically manipulated, artificially inseminated, and often drugged to force them to produce about four and a half times as much milk as they naturally would to feed their calves.

Avoid calcium-induced premature death! On the next NaturalNews Talk Hour, Thomas E. Levy, MD, JD blows the whistle on the calcium supplement and conventional dairy industry. Marketing and false advertising has brainwashed an entire population. This program exposes the life-threatening dangers surrounding excess calcium intake.

The huge problem with calcium

According to Dr. Thomas Levy, based on a comprehensive review of 15 independent clinical investigations, “you are 30% more likely to have a heart attack and up to 20% more likely to have a stroke if you take an extra 500 mg of calcium or more per day.” Naturally, the more you consume – the greater your risk of premature death. Keep in mind, arterial plaque has a tremendous amount of calcium and eventually can lead to sudden death by a heart attack or stroke.

Cancer patients need to be careful about calcium intake. Scientific research clearly demonstrates that cancer cells love calcium. In fact, this build-up of intracellular calcium increases oxidative stress, cellular dysfunction and premature cell death. Couple free radical damage with a lack of sufficient antioxidant intake is a dangerous combination.

On the next NaturalNews Talk Hour, you’ll discover what conventional medicine is NOT telling you about the dangers of excess calcium intake. If you’re looking to reverse disease and achieve optimal health – don’t miss this program.

The deadly myths surrounding calcium

Have you ever heard of the marketing slogan, ‘milk does the body good’? How about ‘got milk?’ These multi-million dollar ad campaigns are not based on good science. For example, if osteoporosis can be avoided by eating lots of calcium rich foods – why does the United States population suffer from this disease?

In truth, a lack of calcium (in the bones) does not correlate to a lack of calcium in the bloodstream or diet.

Does your doctor believe that calcium supplements will help prevent bone fractures? Sadly, there is little scientific data to suggest that calcium supplementation (alone) can reduce the risk of fractures. Bone density does not equal stronger bones. In truth, many other nutrients are necessary to maintain healthy bones like, vitamin D.

On the next NaturalNews Talk Hour – we’ll highlight the best ways to keep your bones strong.

    I have been avoiding dairy products for a while now, and am looking for natural ways to supplement my calcium intake. Thanks for this article~
    I really have been rethinking what I’ve been told over the years.

      For Sunnie 773, the perfect way to supplement your calcium is with magnesium, vitamin D3, and vitamin D2,
      Quoting an article from the Mercola web site, You can think of vitamin D as the gatekeeper, controlling who gets in, and vitamin K as the traffic cop, directing the traffic to where it needs to go.
      Lots of traffic — but no traffic cop — means clogging, crowding, and chaos everywhere!
      In other words, without the help of vitamin K2, the calcium that your vitamin D so effectively lets in might be working AGAINST you — by building up in your coronary arteries rather than your bones.

        Thank you, very helpful.

    • Nancy

      Sorry for the mistyping below. I meant to say D3 and K2, not D3 and D2.

    Hi Jonathan,
    I would like to comment on your article about milk.
    The information you supplied are not correct. Here is an extract from our friend Mike Adams that I have slightly altered to fit the subject.
    ‘• Eggs/Milk – The vicious campaign attacking eggs /milk– waged throughout
    the 1970’s and 1980’s — was based entirely on junk science and
    deceptive dietary advice. Whole milk/eggs, it turns out, are very healthy
    when produced by truly free-range cows/chickens that aren’t fed GMOs,
    pesticides and chemicals. Today, people recognize this again, and more people are not just buying milk/eggs but even raising their own cows/chickens (like I do).’ (Sorry ‘NaturalNews” I just couldn’t resist the temtation to use your whip to show the same applies here with regards to raw whole milk.)

    Please don’t refer to milk in general but specify ‘raw fullcream milk’ or ‘skimed milk’ because with skimed milk all the fat soluble vitamins (A, D, E & K) were stolen from the good milk and what is left for us to drink is normally tainted with hormones and GMO’s.
    These Vitamins (A, D, E & K as well as Lecithin) are crucial for the proper absorbtion and distribution of calcium in a body.
    They have used skimed milk in their studies.

    There is no reference to the different ethnic-group tolerances to milk. You can’t supply milk products as hunger relief to Somalia. They will all get the runs and die. But other groups will florish on it. About 85% of the world population don’t benefit from drinking any milk. But the remaining 15% of us, intended to inherit the land of milk and honey, can florish on raw organic milk and milk products like organic cheese and joghurts.

    Kind Regards

      I read Dr. Levy’s new book on Death by calcium. To much Calcium from any source leads to disease and premature death based on lots of science

    • G Clay

      If you get enough Magnesium (the master mineral) to balance out the
      Calcium and put it in it’s proper place (bones/teeth) it would no doubt
      be extremely beneficial. We always hear about getting enough Calcium and
      Potassium but never Magnesium. You are definitely right about the benefits of drinking REAL un-pasteurized/un-homoginized RAW milk from grass fed cows with the cream on top.

  • This is a very misleading article. As I do agree that we eat too much dairy as a country, it depends on the kind of dairy. Many people do quite well on raw cow and goat milk. It greatly depends on where the milk has come from. What is a problem is when people just go and buy a cheap calcium pill. I’ve taken a calcium supplement for years, but it’s a liquid calcium orotate and includes all the other minerals that calcium needs to be used by the body, such as magnesium and potassium. Matter of fact, I’ve seen heart arrhythmia reversed, back issues reversed, arthritic issues reversed. There is a lot left to the imagination with this article.

    …..and let us not forget dairy ~ cheese, yogurt ~ IS ESSENTIAL FOR B-12 as the CRITICAL vitamin is only animal sourced.
    ….. researches like the China Study…ask yourself what kind of milk did they use throughout???
    ……we need to be aware but seems like there is alot of important information missing here!!

  • Robert Pollard

    I like the idea of this site but it gives very little information so that you’ll buy the book. Need to get a solid foundation of information from the articles as opposed to a book sales pitch.
    I’m very leery of sites that use teasers to get you to buy something. There are many sites out there that use this technique and although I know they are trying to create revenue for themselves it leaves those out in the cold that can’t buy a book a day.
