A research of the US National Institute of Health (NIH), The use of calcium and vitamin D in the management of osteoporosis explained that 99% of the calcium that the body consumes goes to the bones and teeth. A lack of calcium and vitamin D will lead to bone thinning or osteoporosis which is told as a silent disease that deteriorates the bone. This tells that people should have enough calcium to keep the bones healthy and avoid some serious bone related problems because of calcium deficiency.
What do these results suggest about the role of calcium in bones? is it important? why or why not?
