After 22 years of rheumatoid arthritis, 2 knee replacements and one hip and a femur fracture repair, and 2 kidney stone operations, I have stopped Adcal, a calcium supplement and will never have it again! All that time I was taking calcium under the impression I would not get osteoporosis, which I have, or a fracture which I did. My surgeon said my leg was like eggshell! I stopped calcium supplements a few months ago and my eye test last week had improved from just 1 year ago! Calcium hardens arteries, chance of cancer with calcium deposits in breasts, causes macular degeneration, and kidney stones.
