Calcium is associated with a lower risk of breast cancer
Doctors reviewed 11 studies covering 26,606 women with breast cancer out of a total of 872,895 participants. Overall, those with the most calcium from diet and supplements were 8 percent less likely to develop breast cancer compared to women who got the least calcium from diet and supplements.

Premenopausal women saw the greatest benefit from good calcium levels: those with the most calcium were 25 percent less likely to develop breast cancer compared to women who got the least calcium. Postmenopausal women who got the most calcium also saw a benefit, with chances for developing breast cancer 6 percent lower compared to women who got the least calcium.
