(CBS News) – A new study in the Journal of the American Medical Association finds men who take Vitamin C supplements are twice as likely to develop kidney stones.

A second study finds calcium supplements can increase the risk of heart disease in men.

Researchers in both studies say foods rich in vitamin c and calcium are a better choice than supplements.
