Calcium supplements can increase risk of heart attack

Calcium supplements have been shown to double the risk of hear attacks.  A recent study of 23,980 men and women found that people who used calcium supplements regularly were 86 percent more likely to suffer a heart attack than those who did not. Those who obtained their calcium just from supplements were 2.7 times more likely than non-users to experience a heart attack.
