Title: The relationship between calcium intake and body fat
Author: Skinner, M.; Institute for Community Engaged Scholarship; Buchholz, A.C.; Randall-Simpson, J.
Abstract: This study demonstrated a potential link between high calcium intakes and low body and truncal fat percentages. Because of the cross-sectional study design, the researchers cannot conclude that high consumption of calcium necessarily equates with low body fat. Other factors, such as dietary fibre intake, need to be considered in addition to calcium intake.
