  1. Absolutely never. This information has been known since pre 1995 (well probably for a lot longer than that) but because of the lies or ignorance that has been created from the asummption that bones only needs calcium has caused this item in the newspaper. Bones also require vitamin D, zinc, copper, manganese, fluoride, silica and boron (This information coming from the U.S. national academy of science).

  2. Bone Formation and Retention
    Although calcium is a major constituent of bone, it is only one of many factors affecting bone health. Genetic influences determine bone mass; sex hormones and physical activity influence bone metabolism. Many dietary constituents are either essential for, or complementary to, the proper utilization of calcium, including vitamin D (Parfitt et al., 1982), copper (Davis and Mertz, 1987), zinc (Hambidge et al., 1986), manganese (Hurley and Keen, 1987), fluorine (Krishnamachari, 1987), silicon (Carlisle, 1986), and boron (Nielsen, 1987).

    This is the information out of the U.S. National academy of sciences
