The skeleton is the largest calcium deposit of the human being. About one kilogram of calcium is found in the body of an adult, and almost the entire quantity is bound within the bones and teeth. For these, calcium is absolutely essential.
Experts have stated that eighty percent of the world’s population absorbs less than the necessary daily quantity of 800 milligrams.
Acalcinosis leads to the decomposition of the bone tissue, and for children to rickets. It also accelerates osteoporosis in women.
But acalcinosis may be avoided easily through a balanced diet. This is done mainly by eating dairy products. But vegetables, nuts, sesame seeds and other sorts of cereals and mineral water can contribute as well. This means that a person who does not eat dairy products may cover his calcium need with other foods.
