NUTRITION JOURNAL 04/10/13 Does dietary calcium interact with dietary fiber against colorectal cancer? A case–control study in Central Europe

It has been investigated the effect of high doses (over 1000 mg/day) of dietary calcium. In general our findings suggest the presence of a relationship for colon cancer and failed for rectal cancer, what is consistent with some other published results [30, 31]. Our study has proved the positive effect showing about 7% decrease in the risk of developing colon cancer for every 100 mg/day increase of dietary calcium, and more than 40% decrease among these who consumed more than 1000 mg/day as compared to lower consumption level.

Moreover our investigation suggests the presence of interaction between fiber and calcium and consistent decrease of the risk of colorectal cancer with the increase of calcium and fiber intake. These results were strengthen for colon cancer, and the effect was not proven for rectal cancer.

This meta-analysis of prospective studies indicates a U-shaped relationship between dietary calcium intake and cardiovascular mortality.

BMC 25/09/14 Dietary calcium intake and mortality risk from cardiovascular disease and all causes: a meta-analysis of prospective cohort studies

Compared with intakes of 800 mg/day, both lower and higher intakes were gradually associated with a higher risk of cardiovascular mortality. For all-cause mortality, we also observed a threshold effect at intakes about 900 mg/day.

The recent national nutritional survey in Japan revealed the gradual decrease in calcium intake to around 480 mg/day. In addition, the patients with low level of vitamin D become too large in proportion.

Calcium is required for vascular contraction and vasodilation, muscle function, nerve transmission, intracellular signaling and hormonal secretion, though less than 1% of total body calcium is needed to support these critical metabolic functions [1]. Serum calcium is very tightly regulated and does not fluctuate with changes in dietary intakes; the body uses bone tissue as a reservoir for, and source of calcium, to maintain constant concentrations of calcium in blood, muscle, and intercellular fluids [1].

The remaining 99% of the body’s calcium supply is stored in the bones and teeth where it supports their structure and function [1]. Bone itself undergoes continuous remodeling, with constant resorption and deposition of calcium into new bone.

Brick-red color originates from calcium. Calcium, with a density of 1.55 g/cm3, is the lightest of the alkaline earth metals; magnesium (specific gravity 1.74) and beryllium (1.84) are more dense, although lighter in atomic mass. From strontium onward, the alkali earth metals become more dense with increasing atomic mass. It has two allotropes.[5] Calcium has a higher electrical resistivity than copper or aluminium, yet weight-for-weight, due to its much lower density, it is a rather better conductor than either.

Ces ANC sont établis en fonction des habitudes alimentaires de la population et il n’est pas anormal qu’ils varient d’un pays à l’autre. Dans le continent asiatique, certaines populations sont traditionnellement productrices et consommatrices de lait et de produits laitiers (en Inde et Mongolie notamment) et d’autres pas. C’est le cas de la plupart des Chinois, même si le lait a été introduit en Chine par la dynastie des empereurs mandchous, originaires de Mongolie. Il faut noter que les Chinois sont eux aussi concernés par l’ostéoporose (et ils le seront de plus en plus, au fur et à mesure de l’augmentation de l’espérance de vie, puisque l’ostéoporose ne se manifeste qu’à partir d’un certain âge).

Emmanuel Hamel (Rhône - UMP) MAPAQ - Nutrition en calcium - problèmes et prévention. SANTE ET SERVICES SOCIAUX QUEBEC – Calcium. Le calcium est un minéral fondamental pour notre corps et celui qui est présent en plus grande quantité dans notre organisme. Il joue un rôle déterminant dans le développement, le maintien et la solidité des os qui se développent jusqu’à l'âge d'environ 30 ans. Par la suite, la masse osseuse commence à diminuer. C’est pourquoi un apport constant et suffisant en calcium est capital à tout âge, et ce, particulièrement pour les femmes. Même lorsque la croissance des os est terminée, il est important de consommer des aliments riches en calcium, puisque ceux-ci constituent une réserve pour l’organisme. Par contre, si notre alimentation est pauvre en calcium, l'organisme ira puiser ce dont il a besoin dans les os. EFSA 27/07/12 Tolerable Upper Intake Level of calcium . EFSA Journal 2012;10(7):2814 [44 pp.]. doi:10.2903/j.efsa.2012.2814 Type: Opinion of the Scientific Committee/Scientific Panel On request from: European Commission Question number: EFSA-Q-2011-00956 Adopted: 26 June 2012 Published: 27 July 2012 Affiliation: European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), Parma, Italy Following a request from the European Commission, the Panel on Dietetic Products, Nutrition and Allergies was asked to re-evaluate the safety in use of calcium.

The Panel was requested to consider if the Tolerable Upper Intake Level (UL) for calcium established by the SCF in 2003 (2,500 mg/day for adults, including pregnant and lactating women), which was based on different intervention studies of long duration in which total daily calcium intakes of 2,500 mg from both diet and supplements were tolerated without adverse effects, needed to be changed on the basis of new available evidence. . © European Food Safety Authority, 2012.
