Study: More calcium doesn't mean stronger bones

LOS ANGELES

Researchers found women who consumed about 750 milligrams of calcium a day had the lowest risk of bone fracture.

But women who consumed more than that did not see their risk for fracture or osteoporosis decline. In fact, they had a higher risk of hip fracture.

Daily recommendations of calcium vary from country to country.

The study is in the online edition of the British Medical Journal.
