Calcium is an essential mineral that our body needs. But just like most of the other things in the world, too much calcium can impact your body badly.
A new study has revealed that consuming supplements that give the minerals could double the risk of mortality through cancer. The study was conducted by the researchers at the Tufts University in the United States and the results were published in the Annal of Internal Medicine.
“Excess intake of the mineral was associated with increased risk for cancer death.. and the association seemed to be related to intake from supplements rather than foods”, the authors noted.
Which is indeed good news as you can rely on natural food items to get your mineral intake rather than going with supplements.
