Calcium Carbonate Effect on Prostate Cancer
In PubMed, under workplace exposure and prostate cancer, a study listed any exposure to calcium carbonate with a RR=2.46 increases the likelihood. Would this apply to using this compound as a dietary source of calcium? (Int J Occup Environ Health 2000 Jul-Sept)
This should not be a problem. There were some reports about milk intake and prostate cancer but this may relate more to the fat content of milk rather than the calcium.
