I'm not sure what sources Google is finding, but our info comes from the USDA's recommendations.

Yes, that answer was in the explanation. But my point was the Google search doesn't bear this out.

According to the info on our site:

"The recommended amount of calcium for male and female adults, ages 19-50, is 1,000 milligrams daily. The amount increases to 1,200 milligrams daily for those over age 51."

Hope that helps,

True or False: Women need more calcium than men do.
I got this one wrong, but why?
The explanation says Men and Women need the same amount.
Answer is false,
But after doing a Google Search, the first 20 results all state Women need more calcium by far then men.

I feel robed.
