4. Dietary calcium intake and hypertension risk: a dose-response meta-analysis of prospective cohort studies. (Abstract)

Dietary calcium intake and hypertension risk: a dose-response meta-analysis of prospective cohort studies. The association of calcium intake with risk of developing hypertension in the general population has not been established yet. We systematically searched PubMed and Scopus databases up to February 2018 to find prospective observational studies investigating the association of calcium intake with risk of developing hypertension. The reported risk estimates were pooled using a random-effects (...) model. Eight prospective cohort studies (248,398 participants and 30,838 cases) were included. Seven studies measured dietary calcium intake, but one study measured total calcium intake (calcium from food and supplements). A significant inverse association was found for the highest versus lowest category of calcium intake (relative risk: 0.89, 95%CI: 0.86, 0.93; I2 = 0%, n = 8), and for each 500 mg/d increment (relative risk: 0.93, 95%CI: 0.90, 0.97; I2 = 64%, n = 7).

9. Vitamin D, calcium or a combination of vitamin D and calcium for the treatment of nutritional rickets in children. (Abstract)

Vitamin D, calcium or a combination of vitamin D and calcium for the treatment of nutritional rickets in children. Nutritional rickets is a disease which affects children, especially in low- and middle-income countries. It causes problems such as skeletal deformities and impaired growth. The most common cause of nutritional rickets is vitamin D deficiency. Vitamin D administered with or without calcium is commonly regarded as the mainstay of treatment. In some sunny countries, however, where (...) children are believed to have adequate vitamin D production from exposure to ultraviolet light, but who are deficient in calcium due to low dietary intake, calcium alone has also been used in the treatment of nutritional rickets. Therefore, it is important to compare the effects of vitamin D, calcium or a combination of vitamin D and calcium for the treatment of nutritional rickets in children living in different settings.To assess the effects of vitamin D, calcium or a combination of vitamin D

10. Comparison of fracture risk using different supplemental doses of vitamin D, calcium or their combination: a network meta-analysis of randomised controlled trials. (Full text)

Comparison of fracture risk using different supplemental doses of vitamin D, calcium or their combination: a network meta-analysis of randomised controlled trials. Inconsistent findings in regard to association between different concentrations of vitamin D, calcium or their combination and the risk of fracture have been reported during the past decade in community-dwelling older people. This study was designed to compare the fracture risk using different concentrations of vitamin D, calcium (...) . There was no evidence that the risk of total fracture was reduced using different concentrations of vitamin D, calcium or their combination compared with placebo or no treatment. No significant associations were found between calcium, vitamin D, or combined calcium and vitamin D supplements and the incidence of hip or vertebral fractures.The use of supplements that included calcium, vitamin D or both was not found to be better than placebo or no treatment in terms of risk of fractures among community-dwelling older

18. Effects of dairy products, calcium, and vitamin D on ovarian cancer risk: a meta-analysis of 29 epidemiological studies. (Full text)

Effects of dairy products, calcium, and vitamin D on ovarian cancer risk: a meta-analysis of 29 epidemiological studies. The findings for the roles of dairy products, calcium, and vitamin D on ovarian cancer risk remain controversial. We aimed to assess these associations by using an updated meta-analysis. Five electronic databases (e.g., PubMed and Embase) were searched from inception to December 24, 2019. Pooled relative risks (RRs) with 95% confidence intervals (CIs) were calculated. A total (...) of 29 case-control or cohort studies were included. For comparisons of the highest vs. lowest intakes, higher whole milk intake was associated with increased ovarian cancer risk (RR: 1.35, 95% CI: 1.15, 1.59), whereas decreased risks were observed for higher intakes of low-fat milk (RR: 0.84, 95% CI: 0.73, 0.96), dietary calcium (RR: 0.71, 95% CI: 0.60, 0.84), and dietary vitamin D (RR: 0.80, 95% CI: 0.67, 0.95). Additionally, for every 100-g/d increment, increased ovarian cancer risks were found

19. Critical thinking about three meta-analyses: can vitamin D alone or with calcium prevent fractures? (Full text)

Critical thinking about three meta-analyses: can vitamin D alone or with calcium prevent fractures? Critical thinking is crucially important in both research and practice. This article demonstrates that a lack of critical thinking in two meta-analyses resulted in a conclusion that contradicts another meta-analysis and popular opinions. Kahwati et al. and Zhao et al. drew a conclusion that "Vitamin D supplementation alone or with calcium was not associated with reduced fracture incidence among (...) community-dwelling adults without known vitamin D deficiency, osteoporosis, or prior fracture", which apparently contradicted that of Tang et al. Kahwati et al. and Zhao et al. meta-analyzed vitamin D and/or calcium supplementation, which can decrease fracture risk factors, in a population with no known disorders of bone metabolism or vitamin D deficiency. They concluded that supplementation did not reduce fracture incidence. It is important to note that osteoporosis, which supplementation can prevent
