Millions take calcium supplements to "protect their bones" completely unaware that this popular ritual is greatly increasing the risk of cardiovascular disease, including heart attack and stroke.

Did you know that most calcium supplements on the market are basically limestone? Yes, that's chalk.

After all, a sizable portion of the Earth's crust is composed of the stuff.
