Abstract

In these days of award shows, I occasionally imagine a glamorous ceremony called the “Pop Nutrition Hall of Fame Dietary Factory of the Year Award.” Magazines, especially “women’s” magazines, are filled with advertisements for calcium supplements. Dairy Councils across the country tell us that the calcium in milk will surely prevent high blood pressure, cancer, and osteoporosis. Products like Rolaids and Turns, promoted for years as antacids, have suddenly become “calcium supplements” as well.
