Abstract

We report an analysis of data from 560 calcium balance studies carried out on 190 women aged 34.8-69.3 years at the time of study. The main purposes were to confirm a previously observed association between caffeine intake and calcium balance, and to attribute the association, if possible, to specific component(s) of balance. We found a caffeine relationship such that for every 6 fl oz (177.5 ml) serving of caffeine-containing coffee, calcium balance was more negative by 0.114 mmol/day (4.6 mg/day) (P
