Regular intake of more than 450 milligrams of calcium from nondairy foods lowered the odds of developing kidney stones by 50% compared with eating 250 milligrams of calcium from nondairy sources, U.S. researchers found. They looked at the Health Professionals Follow-up Study and the Nurses' Health Studies, and noted that those who consumed the most calcium had a 77% reduced kidney stone risk compared with those who had the least intake. The findings appear in the Journal of Urology.
