Calcium Can Reduce The Chance Of Cancer For Women


Researchers in the National Institutes of Health (NIH)-AARP Diet and Health Study have found that increasing calcium levels can reduce the risk of cancer in women.

The results of the study, reported in the Archives of Internal Medicine, indicated that increasing your calcium intake can decrease your risk of all cancers if you’re a woman. This holds true with doses up to 1,300 mg of calcium per day—if you take more calcium than that, there are no signs of further decreasing your cancer risk.

But extra calcium also lowers the chance of cancers of the digestive system—particularly colorectal cancer—in both women and men.

You can get your additional calcium with a supplement and from raw milk – and get other health benefits as well—or through the consumption of cheese and yogurt.

And don’t forget about nondairy sources of calcium such as salmon, tofu, sardines, collard greens, spinach, turnip greens, okra, broccoli, sesame seeds, almonds and more. What an easy and delicious way to cut down your chances of one of the most dreaded of all diseases.
