Calcium supplementation may increase the risk of heart attack by 30% according to the British Medical Journal (July, 2011), which published the results of a combination of several studies involving over 8000 people who took only 500mg of calcium daily.

Here's some important information about Calcium:

The RDA for calcium is 1000mg per day. The folks who were in the studies took only 500mg of calcium per day.
Many studies actually link excess calcium and calcium supplements to low bone density.
Food in its natural, non-processed form is the best source of calcium according to a 2007 study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
Some calcium supplements are actually quite good, especially when combined with good dietary sources of calcium. The bone density levels were the highest with the combo.
