ABSTRACT:
The results of epidemiological and “balance” trials concerning calcium and phosphorus intake in different population groups in different ages are presented in this paper. On the grounds of collected information from trials aforesaid, as well as from other publications concerning phosphorus and calcium nutritional recommendations , the updating of those recommendations for Polish are proposed. Changes refer mainly to increased calcium and phosphorus intake among adolescents of both sexes, aged 10 - 18 years. For adults aged 26 - 50 and 60 and over, the increase of calcium intake and the reduction of phosphorus intake is proposed. The group of menopausal women is separated in the publication. For them the calcium intake level is proposed according to hormonal substitution therapy used or not by them. For adults aged 60 and over increase of calcium intake is proposed. It is stressed in the paper that increased calcium intake can prevent osteoporosis regardless of age.
