Brief Comments By Scientists

and health professionals

"TR Klompmaker proposed that adequate calcium intake should be determined on
the basis of the function of osteoblast. Excess calcium intake may accelerate
the osteoblastic function by promoting replication of osteoblast,
resulting in increase of the rate of apoptosis of osteoblast
and in the increased rate of fracture."

Dr Hirotoshi Morii, MD
Professor emeritus
in his article as executive editor of the journal "Clinical Calcium"
late chairman of Japan Osteoporosis Society

"I am not clear about your conclusions"
"...I like your concept of ARORC"

Lawrence G. Raisz, MD

"You have published an article which is intriguing...
Although I do not know if it is a valid correlation you observed,
every challenging theory deserves to be put at test".

Dr Peter Lakatos, Hungary
European Calcified Tissue Society

"Living in the part of the world with the highest incidence of fractures,
we have been puzzled of the seemingly paradoxical situation of
having a very high calcium intake and the high fracture incidence.
We will discuss your hypothesis at length in our group.
It would be very exciting to be able to proceed to trials in the area"

Vinjar Fønnebø
Professor of Medicine
Norwegian Osteoporosis Foundation

"My first reaction is that you're on to something"

"I have read your article with interest
Like you, I have not been convinced with the Calcium insufficient hypothesis...
I will raise your paper at the next meeting"

I am looking forward to hear about your mouse experiments"
