Milk can have dangerous effects on the heart and blood vessels, scientists believe

Milk is a common product. Children are recommended each day to drink at least a glass of milk at night. It is established that calcium is good for bones, and pediatricians believe milk is the ideal liquid for your child's first year of life, especially if it is maternal.

A recent study by Swedish scientists proves that the consumption of milk in excess (more than two glasses per day) can result in dire consequences. Excess calcium increases the risk of death from cardiovascular disease. The fact was proven during the observation of a group of women who drank per day to 1.4 liters.

Excess calcium does not have time to be absorbed by the body. Its remains form deposits on the walls of blood vessels. This decreases their elasticity. These vessels perform worse than their transport function. As a result, the organs, including the heart, receives less oxygen, which increases the risk of myocardial infarction and stroke.
