Breast Cancer and Heart Attacks: A Deadly Side Effect of Calcium Supplements OR Could It Be The The Synthetic Vitamin D3?
By Dr. Mercola - January 30 2012
In this article Dr. Mercola implies that taking elemental calcium supplements may actually increase your relative risk of heart attack and stroke.
However people have been taking calcium supplements for years, if not centuries (albeit the wrong form).
So why all of a sudden are calcium supplements causing these problems?
I submit to you that the problem is the addition of cholecalciferol, the synthetic form of D3 that Big Dharma is handing out by the bushel basket full, (It is also used in Rat Poisons).
This synthetic cholecalciferol is produced industrially by the irradiation of cholesterol extracted from wool grease and wool wax alcohols obtained from the cleaning of wool after shearing.
Some unwanted isomers are formed during the irradiations which are then removed by various industrial techniques.

Do You Honestly Believe That Big Pharma Is Interested in Making You Healthy So That You Will Not Need Their Drugs?
By Dr. Donald K. Weber
First the Cholesterol drug scam and now the Synthetic Vitamin D3 Scam
The Cholesterol drug scam nets them Billions of dollars in profits every year.
The Synthetic Vitamin D3 Scam will make that look like loose change.
Because synthetic Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) causes hypercalcaemia which is defined as abnormally elevated calcium levels in the blood resulting in cardiac arrhythmias, and then death.
Other Side Effects of hypercalcaemia include Constipation, Kidney Stones, Flatulence, Stomach Problems, Plaque in Arteries, Risk of Prostate Cancer, Calcium Toxicity, Interactions with Medicines, Dry mouth, confusion, severe fatigue, nausea, digestion problems, dizziness and even seizures.
And also because hypercalcaemia through Synthetic Vitamin D3 metabolism causes a Magnesium deficiency in your body.
And Magnesium deficiency is the major underlying cause of the following deceases:
Anxiety, hyperactivity, restlessness
Muscle spasms, twitches, soreness
Chest tightness and difficulty breathing
High blood pressure
Sudden cardiac death (SCD).
Hearing loss Migraine headache Premenstrual syndrome (PMS)
Preeclampsia and Eclampsia
Restless legs syndrome and leg cramps
And the list goes on, and on, and on.
In Fact Chronic Magnesium Deficiency Exists In Nearly All Cases Of Disease
Hospital Laboratory Testing Fails to Detect Most Magnesium Deficiencies
For the record – Taking a magnesium supplement that is not in a 5 to 1 ratio with calcium, (5 parts calcium to 1 part magnesium), has its own set of major health problems, including osteoporosis.
Therefore the ONLY calcium supplement that I recommend is Calcium Lactate from Standard Process Inc. which is in the required 5 to 1 ratio
So What Is The Solution?
Naturally occurring Vitamin D.
There are only three viable sources of naturally occurring Vitamin D
1. The Sun
3. Fermented Cod Liver Oil
The only way you will absorb Vitamin D from the sun is if your cells are 55% medium chain saturated fat from virgin coconut oil, virgin palm oil, grass-fed butter and grass-fed animal and dairy products.
If you are not paying $18-$22 per pound for your fish you are eating Farm Raised Fish which is fed SOY mixed with chicken manure and pig manure, and has very little, if any, Vitamin D in it.
So that leaves Fermented Cod Liver Oil as the most viable solution as ALL other cod liver oils on the market today have been molecular distilled, which removes the naturally occurring Vitamin D, and now has the industry standard of the synthetic Vitamin D3 being added back into it.
And guess what?
Currently 26 Million Americans NOW Have diabetes and because of synthetic vitamin D3 a shocking 79 million others have pre-diabetes
And without naturally occurring Vitamin D your body will not absorb magnesium, or any other mineral for that matter.
