A new study finds Calcium and Vitamin-D supplements may not help bone health as much as we first thought.
Researchers followed women aged 50 to 79 and found those taking the pills had no significant reduction in fractures, but a 17 percent increased risk of kidney stones.
However, when researchers only*studied those 60 and over, there were actually 21 percent fewer hip fractures.
Doctors say there's no need to toss your Calcium and Vitamin pills out just yet, because like other big studies in the past, the data in this one still needs to be analyzed.
