This is quite surprising since calcium should be good for everyone. Calcium intake in men should be monitored.

Cholesterol isn't exactly the culprit of heart attacks. Its Calcium that is depleted from bones as we age. Statin drugs cause loss of memory for cholesterol removal in the brain. Its a political drug. I wouldn't use metropolol either.
