Today we lack a lot of calcium in our diets. We need a good amount
of calcium to keep our bones teeth muscles and blood stream healthy.
Calcium is supposed to be the most commonly found mineral in humans
today, yet even though it is still true, we are lacking the proper
Because of this, our bones are getting weaker and more fragile,
making us perfect targets for the bone disease osteoporosis. Calcium
is not that hard to get into our bodies.
It can be found in dairy products, beans, and other nutritional
foods as well. We do not seem to get enough intake of these types
of foods, so there for our calcium levels are usually low.
One of the things wrong with this is that the recommended servings
is about to change. Where it used to be we should drink one glass
of milk a day and get at least three servings of dairy or beans,
it is about to change to where we are recommended 3 glasses of milk
a day and at least 6 servings of dairy or beans a day, and that
is just for calcium.
We are not eating right and because of it we are losing our bones
teeth and muscles. Calcium is needed not only for those but it also
helps with contraction of muscles, and as you may know, our most
important muscle is our heart. With our calcium levels dropping
we are slowly enabling our heart to get heart disease, and high
We must put a stop to this before it is too late. Over half the
population of America suffers from heart disease already. If we
donít start getting the right amount of calcium needed we are going
to end up with the whole country having heart disease.
Calcium in Kids
During childhood, the body uses calcium to build strong bones and
teeth: a process that is finished by the end of the teenage years.
Bone calcium begins to decrease in adulthood and continued loss
of bone occurs as we age, found to do so more in women.
Teenagers, especially girls, whose diets don't give the nutrients
to build bones to their best are at a higher risk of developing
the bone disease osteoporosis, which is becoming more of a problem
every day. Osteoporosis causes fractures in weak bones and can make
a persons bones easier to break.
Calcium also plays an important role in muscle contraction, sending
messages through the nerves, and the release of hormones. If blood
calcium levels are low, calcium is taken from the bones to ensure
normal cell function.
When children get enough calcium and physical activity during childhood
and the teen years, they can start out their adult lives with the
strongest bones possible. If how ever they do not get the right
amount they can find that their bones and teeth can grow weak quicker
then they should.
By feeding your child food that has enough calcium in it, you are
helping them to build strong bones and teeth. You are also enabling
them to be able to have a good and healthy diet through out their
People today are very unhealthy, low calcium intake as a child
is part of the problem. Children need the right amount of calcium
to stay strong, and without that needed calcium they grow to be
obese, weak, and their bones break easier.
When we are children, we are not able to make sure we are getting
what we need, so it is up to the parent to make sure the child gets
what is needed. Children also wonít eat everything that is put in
front of them. This is a small problem, but it is easily fixed.
Some of the things that seem like snacks actually have a good amount
of calcium in them. Ice cream being one example, anything with dairy
in it has calcium in it.
