Abstract

Within the past five years, a substantial body of data drawn from epidemiologic investigations suggest a reproducible association between dietary calcium consumption and the prevalence of hypertension in the U. S. population. In light of recent reports that increasing dietary calcium reduces blood pressure in mild hypertension, these reported reductions in dietary calcium intake take on added significance. Future investigations are needed to define the relationship between lower intake of dietary calcium and metabolic abnormalities associated with hypertension.
