Human body is made up of chemical substances.
Therefore, human beings are scientific creature.
But funny to know that majority of god soldiers and godmen don't realise this and hate scientific knowledge and strongly believe on mythological knowledge without any evidences and become emotional whenever someone raise issues about it with reasons based upon scientific evidences and hurt themselves with their own Ignorance.
Who cares such people who want to hurt themselves because of their regressive, stationary closed and programmed mind!!
Anyway, isn't it fascinating to know that on our planet we can find calcium every where and hence nature has utilized this in our bone. Similarly we can find the 75% of water in every tissue and blood this also can be explained on the basis of presence of ample amount of water.
About 25% of bone tissue is water, another 25% is made up of protein fibers like collagen. The other 50% of bone tissue is a mixture of mineral salts, primarily calcium and phosphorous.
The average adult’s weight is made up of about 2% calcium. Most of this is found in the skeleton and teeth – the rest is stored in the tissues or blood. Calcium is vital for healthy teeth and bones. It also plays a crucial role in other systems of the body, such as the health and functioning of nerves and muscle tissue.
Calcium is essential for strong bones and teeth. Calcium deficiency can lead to disorders like osteoporosis (brittle bones). Good sources of calcium include dairy foods and calcium fortified products such as soymilk and breakfast cereals. Calcium is especially important for young children, teenagers and older women.
Good sources of calcium include dairy foods such as Milk and milk products, Leafy green vegetables, Soya and Tofu, and Nuts and seeds.
People at different life stages need different amounts of calcium – young children, teenagers, pregnant women and older women all have greater than average requirements.
According to the Australian Nutrition Survey, about 90% of women and 70% of children do not achieve the recommended dietary intake (RDI) for calcium. It is much better to get calcium from foods than from calcium supplements. Be guided by your doctor about whether you need additional supplements. Too much calcium (2,000mg or more) from supplements may cause other health problems.
