I haven‘t quite read Levy‘s book yet. But „Death by Calcium“, I don‘t believe it. Andrew Saul reports annually: No Deaths from Minerals, Never.
http://orthomolecular.org/resources/omns/v13n02.shtml

According to Eaton and others, our ancestors consumed 2 grams of calcium daily. I can‘t achieve that.

And calcium is one of the 47 essential substances we need. If only one is missing, we are indeed dead. Death without calcium, I think.

I can‘t hear it anymore.
I hope you can read or remember:
- Look at post number 16
- Look at topic „Open Letter by Dr. M. Rath“, post number 4 and 6
- and look at the calcium list (spinache contains 121 mg calcium/100 g. You have to eat 2 kg to achieve about 2 g. Not from the supermarket. And raw. I can‘t do it).

Dr. Michael Holick (The Vitamin D Solution) sent me an answer to my question about calcium supplementation. He writes: „It is ideal to get our calcium requirements from dietary sources. Dairy products are a good source and some juices are fortified with calcium and vitamin D and are also a good source. I recommend to my patients if they are unable to get it from dietary sources then 500 mg of calcium twice a day taken with a meal is a good way to satisfy their requirement.“
This is in line with Dr. Andrew Saul‘s recommendation in his (and Abram Hoffer‘s) book „Orthomolecular Medicine for Everyone“. But I also asked Dr. Saul.

You might ask Dr. Holick about vitamin D and sexual function. My alt doc mentioned the Vitamin D connection, which was news for me. Apparently there is one study that showed an association.

Recent research suggests that nearly every cell of our body has receptors for VD, indicating a much more diverse role for this vitamin than we previously recognized. VD is now recognized not only for its importance in bone health, but also for other organs including the penis.

There‘s a new book by William Grant „Embrace the Sun“. And the books by Michael Holick or (perhaps) by Jeff Bowles „The miraculous results of extremely high doses of the sunshine hormone Vitamin D“. Or the website of the vitamin D council. And so on. With very interesting informations about vitamin D and heart health. I’m sure, there you‘ll also find informations about vitamin D and sexual dunction.

Dr. Saul answered to my question and the mail by Dr. Holick:
„I admire Dr. Holick and he is a very good reference. I interviewed him some years back at http://www.doctoryourself.com/holick.html
A search at www.doctoryourself.com for „calcium“ will bring up quite a lot of what I have to say on the subject.“

I searched and found (for example) this
