Regarding "The Calcium Factor"

Any opinions?

### A way of making a fast buck for the good doctor. There is no evidence
that calcium supplementation helps in Parkinson's (and trust me, I am a
neurologist specializing in movement disorders), at best shaky evidence for
efficacy in osteoporosis, and its only clearly well-grounded use is in
tetania (not to be confused with tetanus).
