(NaturalNews) The big lie pertains mostly to calcium supplementation. Calcium from raw whole foods is beneficial and necessary. But all those processed foods fortified with calcium or supplements high in elemental* calcium are likely to do more harm than good.

Bone Health and Calcium

Several international trials and tests have determined that calcium supplementation makes bones denser, but weaker! The calcium for bone health paradigm is a serious oversimplification.

Other minerals, such as magnesium, are part of the bone health paradigm. Dr. Robert Thompson, author of The Calcium Lie, explains that there are a dozen minerals involved with building strong bones. He recommends using unprocessed sea salt to compliment your trace mineral needs, which we don't get because of the depleted topsoil in agriculture.

Dr. Thompson maintains that focusing on calcium supplementation without considering the complimentary minerals and vitamin K2 increases one's risk of osteoporosis. Complimentary minerals include silica and magnesium. Silica is found in cucumbers, bell peppers, and tomatoes. Magnesium is abundant in cacao and green leafy vegetables.

Dr. Mark Sircus is big on proper magnesium supplementation. Magnesium is pivotal for 300 metabolic processes involving other minerals and vitamins.

Plant derived calcium, which is often balanced naturally with other minerals, is the best way to meet most calcium needs. In several of the recent international studies that have debunked calcium myths, pasteurized dairy was used to determine higher risks of prostate cancer from calcium.

No surprise there. Pasteurized dead dairy is the only type of dairy medical science recognizes as food!
It's safe to assume that raw dairy produced by grass eating cows is actually a good source of beneficial calcium.

Vitamin K2 is found in Japanese nato and other fermented foods including some cheeses. Vitamin K2 should be supplemented since it carries calcium out of the blood stream and into bone matter. Otherwise, calcium collects in the blood stream and invades soft tissue instead of being absorbed in bone matter. What happens from there wreaks havoc on vital tissues, kidneys, arterial walls and heart muscle.

Exposing Calcium Lies and Kicking the Cholesterol Scare

Cholesterol is necessary for good health. It creates soft fatty tissue, much of which makes up brain matter. It's not cholesterol that builds up in arteries to form plaque or harden the arteries. It's actually calcium that is the culprit. You may have found the term calcification appearing more frequently in health articles lately. It's becoming a popularly accepted notion because it's an increased awareness of reality.

Calcification is the hardening of tissue matter, usually from calcium, that collects in all the wrong places. That's why vitamin K2 is important. K2 also ensures increased calcium absorption from Vitamin D supplementation into the skeleton instead of calcifying in cardiac zones.

Calcium can easily get stockpiled and calcify in organs. That's what usually causes kidney stones. Calcification of brain matter can lead to Alzheimer's disease. Hardened arteries resulting from excess calcium leads to heart attacks and other pulmonary problems. It's easy to see how calcification of the prostate gland can lead to cancer as well.

Another pernicious function of calcified areas is encasing toxins, making it harder to eliminate them. Additionally, these calcified areas in soft tissue create pockets for sneaky pathogenic bacteria or viruses to lodge, making them difficult to locate and treat.

This is why it's important to focus on rich organic whole foods with plant derived calcium for calcium balanced with other minerals. Calcium from supplements and enriched processed foods tends to be unrecognizable as a nutrient by the body. So it collects where it shouldn't.
