CALCIUM SUPPLEMENTATION DOES NOT PREVENT PREECLAMPSIA based on the results of a study in over 4,500 first-time pregnant women, Richard Levine, MD, National Institute of Child Health & Human Development et al., conclude in a study published in the July 10 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine. Taking calcium supplements during pregnancy also did not prevent pregnancy-associated hypertension or adverse perinatal outcomes in healthy women, the researchers found.
