Elevated cancer risk from calcium supplementsConsuming too many nutrients, particularly when they come from supplements, may increase the risk of death, new research shows.

Taking in at least 1,000 milligrams of calcium a day from supplements is associated with a higher risk of cancer death, according to a study published Tuesday in the Annals of Internal Medicine. People with no vitamin D deficiency also faced an increased death risk when they consumed the nutrient in a supplement.

"As potential benefits and harm of supplement use continue to be studied, some studies have found associations between excess nutrient intake and adverse outcomes, including increased risk of certain cancers," Fang Fang Zhang, a researcher at Tufts University and study senior author, said in news release. "It is important to understand the role that the nutrient and its source might play in health outcomes, particularly if the affect might not be beneficial."
