Overseas Health Insurance News: Calcium supplements raise heart attack risk

People who are heading abroad to start a new life in the sun might wish to think about how to protect themselves against health issues such as heart attacks, which have been found to be more likely among those who take calcium supplements.

New research published in the online issue of industry journal Heart shows there could be a link between the supplements and cardiac arrests.

In previous studies, calcium intake has been linked to a reduction in the chance of suffering from high blood pressure.

One way people who are moving abroad can deal with potential health worries is to invest in expat insurance, which should cover them in the event of a problem.

The most recent annual NatWest International Personal Banking Quality of Life Index found some 4.6 million Britons are currently living abroad, suggesting there are plenty who can benefit from such policies.
