A deficient calcium intake in itself is considered as a major risk factor for osteoporosis. This deficiency is easily induced because of the obligatory losses of calcium via the bowel, kidneys and skin. Adequate calcium consumption throughout the lifecycle may help to the attainment and maintenance of peak bone mass and in the prevention of chronic diseases like osteoporosis 2-4 , hypertension and certain types of cancer later in life.
