Are you getting enough calcium?

Are you getting enough calcium?

If dairy foods are off the menu, how can you be sure you''re getting enough calcium? Try going green. Broccoli and dark green vegetables, such as spinach, kale, and turnip and collard greens, are good sources of calcium. Also look for calcium-fortified foods, such as soy milk and fruit juices. Recent studies suggest that the risks of calcium supplements, principally kidney stones, outweigh the benefits for most people.
