Fibromyalgia and Calcium
In our modern world calcium from food sources seem to be mainly from dairy products. We are told we need calcium in great amounts to protect our bones. We are told to drink lots of milk to build strong bones. Milk does the body good so the commercial goes. What if this was giving the total opposite effects of what we have been lead to believe all our lives?
Jon Barron – Killer Calcium?:
In a calcium obsessed society, even when virtually every health expert in the world is telling us we need to supplement with calcium, if the truth be known, we get more than enough calcium. An abundance of research is showing that high calcium intake, dietary or supplementary leads to heart disease, arthritis, debilitating PMS and senility.
The term calcification refers to the binding of calcium with phosphate to form hard bony structures. This is what builds strong bones and teeth but when calcification occurs in soft tissue (anywhere other than the bones and teeth), it presents major health problems. It can lead to hardening of organs and tissue such as heart and arteries, kidneys, brain, skin, joints, breast, pancreas, prostrate and ovaries, etc. This calcification occurs primarily as deposits that steadily grow bigger over time.
– plaque build-up in the arteries (calcium is a major component of arterial plaque)
– kidney stones
– hardening of the ovaries
As calcification builds up in these areas, it can trigger inflammation, autoimmune
responses, infection and the total shut down of the affected organ.
– 50% of all deaths in North America are caused by calcification and hardening of the arteries and calcification of the heart valves.
