CALCIUM SUPPLEMENTS MAY REDUCE
Where possible, the food manufacturers too do likewise (e.g., biscuits, corn flakes, etc.).
They convince us with the so-called scientific evidences. Daily minimum requirement of calcium is often used as a selling point.
In this process, both the manufacturers and the consumers appear to be overlooking TWO important aspects.
(1) Their particular food item may meet certain percentage of the daily calcium requirement of a person.
What happens if the person takes double or triple servings of THAT product?
What would happen if THAT person consumes several other products that may contain ‘plenty’ of calcium, but to the level suggested by the Daily Minimum Requirement program?
Will they not add up to ENORMOUS quantities?
(2) The universal truth is “Anything in EXCESS will be dangerous!”
Although I am not too sure of the constipation aspect, I fully subscribe to the above statement.
In fact, there are a few more problems as well.
2. Calcium supplementations would harm well-urinating people to a minor extent
3. Even natural food and drinks would harm the under-urinating people.
4. If under-urinating people take calcium supplements, they would end up with major diseases, such as type-2 diabetes, kidney stones, hypothyroidism, heart blockages, brain tumours, cancers, and the like.
5. Likewise, if people whose faecal matter is SLIMY all the time (due to the intake of very high fibre or eating over-ripe fruits such as papaya, and the like), and if they take calcium supplements, the situation can become WORSE.
6. It is true that excessive calcium, being highly alkaline, suppresses the utilization of iron from food, thus can cause iron-deficiency anaemia.
7. Excessive calcium in the body makes a person dull-headed and lazy, owing to the above-indicated iron shortage. Memory failure becomes a common complaint.
8. It is true that excessive calcium within the body results in kidney stones, thickening of blood vessels, and also the heart blockages.
9. Excessive calcium with adequate Vitamin-D (either from sunshine or from enriched consumables) gives rise extra bone growth, such as SPURS, or even to start off Chondosarcoma (cancer in the long bone).
10. Apart from all the above, EXCESSIVE calcium enters into cells, and ENLARGES THEM, resulting in the enlargement of the entire organ: e.g., Prostate Gland.
(I have observed this problem in nearly all those who consume excessive SOUPS: e.g., 14 bowls of any soup, every week.)
(After all, soups are extracts of all water-soluble substances from vegetables or meats / bones, particularly the calcium.)
11. Continued accumulation of such excessive calcium within the cells makes the cells HEAVIER as well. Collectively, the body becomes overweight / obese.
12 Such accumulations in the thyroid gland gives hypothyroidism.
13. Too much of calcium gives early menopause to women.
14. AGAIN, TOO MUCH OF THIS WILL GIVE OSTEOPROSIS IN MENOPAUSAL WOMEN. (Calcium deficiency does NOT give osteoporosis to women, instead, the brain sheds of the excess – I will discuss this elsewhere, again). (See Palaniappan, 2012: Menses, Menopause, and Osteoporosis”.)
15. Too much of calcium increases the SIZE of the sperms, and reduces number of sperms and sperm motility in the seminal fluid.
16. Far too much of calcium within the body (in the cells of the soft tissues, of course) gives rise to lumps / benign structures initially, which, upon further accumulation, turn into cancers (See Palaniappan, 2010: Cancer: Causes, Cure and Prevention).
17. Excessive calcium in the lymph ducts give rise to cancer there.
18. Excessive calcium in the blood gives rise to blood cancer.
19. Excessive calcium in the intercellular spaces in the brain of those people who sleep without a pillow (or positioning the head at a lesser level than rest of the body), gives rise to brain tumour.
20. The same in the colo-rectal region gives rise to colo-rectal cancer, and so on.
The following papers have relevance to this finding:
I do not deny that.
That is, calcium supplementations could have reduced the incidence of colo-rectal cancer.
This will form my explanation/ interpretation for the findings reported in the following paper:
HENCE, THE ABOVE STUDIES HAD YIELDED A SIGNIFICANT REDUCTION IN THE COLO-RECTAL CANCER INCIDENCE.
(* Ref: How to take EXACT body weight: The weighing should be done without clothes, AFTER toileting, after voiding urine, before breakfast, all the time - i.e., daily. Only then, any two readings will become comparable.)
On absorption, such calcium is simply passed on to the liver for further distribution and use.
(* During daytime, the food keeps on moving in the smaller intestine. However, if a person constantly and habitually eats very late night dinner, say after 10 or 11 p.m., the food would get stagnated in the upper parts of the intestinal tract, owing to the cessation of the peristalsis action.
The peristalsis that resumes the next morning would push the food further.
Such over-night stagnation enhances the absorption of calcium by lining cells in the stomach itself to yield stomach or pancreatic cancer.
This does not seem to occur in early diners)
I will write an appropriate and acceptable answer to this question in my next posting.
