- A re-examination of The Women’s Health Initiative Calcium/Vitamin D Supplementation (WHI CaD) has shown a modest increase in risk of heart attack and paralysis for those taking calcium supplements, with or without vitamin D. The study originally found no risk associated with the supplements after studying more than 36,000 patients over seven years.
- The study analyzed data from 16,718 women who were not taking calcium supplements at the start of the trial and found that those allocated to combined calcium and vitamin D supplements were at an increased risk of heart attack. By contrast, who were taking calcium supplements before entering the trial, combined calcium and vitamin D supplements did not alter their cardiovascular risk.

When you see real as unreal or unreal as real medically it is called as illusion. In illusion once you are told about the reality you correct yourself. On the other hand in delusion though one is also away from the reality but stays in that without correcting oneself.For example a person by mistake thinks a snake as a rope. A psychotic will persist that it is a rope and not snake but the person in illusion will immediate correct himself once he goes near by and actually sees a snake.
