Recently a few studies have been published that have conflicting results.  Some say that consuming excess calcium in supplement form increases a woman’s risk of developing heart disease.  Other studies suggest that this is not the case.  A study that in currently under way at the MUHC is hoping to clarify this.  If you are a healthy post menopausal woman over the age of 50, and a non-smoker you may be eligible to participate in the study.  Please contact Angel Ong at 514-934-1934 ext. 45742.   Calcium Study Recruitment brochure (FINAL) (2)
