Osteoporosis Canada is excited to announce its new video for Osteoporosis Month. Watch the video and listen as people with osteoporosis share their personal stories of diagnosis and living with the disease.
The National Osteoporosis Foundation and the American Society for Preventive Cardiology formed an expert panel and completed a detailed review of all published research evaluating the effects of calcium intake from food sources and or supplements with or without vitamin D on the risk of heart attacks, strokes and death.
The review confirms that there does not appear to be any harmful or beneficial effects of calcium and or vitamin D on the risk of heart disease or stroke or on the likelihood of death in healthy adults.
