"...serum vitamin D seems to have an opposite effect on the skeleton as it does on the vessels. The lower the vitamin 1,25-D level the higher the level of calcification in the blood vessels."
"In animal studies, active supplementation of Vitamin K2 caused regression of existing arterial calcification."
"...higher serum phosphorus, a putative CVD risk factor associated with loss of kidney function, significantly influenced development of [coronary artery calcification]"
