Breast Cancer and Heart Attacks: A Deadly Side Effect of Calcium Supplements OR Could It Be The The Synthetic Vitamin D3?

August 9, 2012


Dr. Donald Weber has a good zinger from time to time... thought i would share his thoughts on the subject....

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.

Now - Please read the following:

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:


Accelerated aging


Cardiovascular disease




Anxiety, hyperactivity, restlessness


Muscle spasms, twitches, soreness

Difficulty swallowing

Back aches

Chest tightness and difficulty breathing

Heart palpitations

High blood pressure

Extreme fatigue


Sudden cardiac death (SCD).


Multiple sclerosis

Stiff Arteries




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

2. Fish

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.

This is an interesting argument. There is another nutrient that relates to these problems that was not acknowledged at all in this article. Kate Rheaume-Bleue wrote about it in her book Vitamin K2 and the Calcium Paradox. As you are producers of High Vitamin Butter Oil, I'm surprised that nothing was said about K2.


K2 is important. Our gut makes many forms of this quinone and it is found in fermented foods including some in the products we sell. And one can buy a lab produced single isomer of K2 if one is ok with single isomer doctoring/approach to health. There are other natural occurring molecular structures within the products that we have no idea how they work in our body. I typically do not attempt to define our products with a narrow scope of this isomer or that isomer as i think the story is much deeper than isolate analysis.

There is a mistake in this article. It is the ergocalciferol, synthetic D2, causing problems. The cholecalciferol, natural D3, is the supplement you want. This other article by Dr. Mercola at this link explains it better.


Real Hormone D has many, many different metabolites... very little is understood. I personally would not take any hormone isolate made and packaged including vitamin D hormone. The subject is much deeper than media medicine describes.

I agree about the synthetic Vitamin D2, but I wondered if you read this from the article? "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."

Also, this is an excerpt from the Wikipedia link listed in the article:
Rodents are somewhat more susceptible to high doses than other species, and cholecalciferol has been used in poison bait for the control of these pests. It has been claimed that the compound is less toxic to non-target species. However, in practice it has been found that use of cholecalciferol in rodenticides represents a significant hazard to other animals, such as dogs and cats. "Cholecalciferol produces hypercalcemia, which results in systemic calcification of soft tissue, leading to renal failure, cardiac abnormalities, hypertension, CNS depression, and GI upset. Signs generally develop within 18-36 hr of ingestion and can include depression, anorexia, polyuria, and polydipsia."[17]

In New Zealand, possums have become a significant pest animal, and cholecalciferol has been used as the active ingredient in lethal gel baits and cereal pellet baits "DECAL" for possum control. The LD50 is 16.8 mg/kg, but only 9.8 mg/kg if calcium carbonate is added to the bait.[18][19]

Kidneys and heart are target organs.[20]"

Great! I think I'll just stick to the fermented cod liver oil!
