> I think I have familial hypercholesterolemia (like 1:500 people). I wonder whether my vascular system will start to store flouride. I wonder whether my bones will become prone to fracturing from flouride (a harder substance) replacing some of the calcium. I wonder whether I will develop problems with calcium homeostasis (which may perhaps induce mineralisation at distant sites as my body tries to sequester calcium but is clogged with flouride instead)?

Actually (coming back to me) the flouride takes the place of the oxygen in the carbonate that binds the calcium. Maybe even 'chelates'. Not sure. So flouride maybe wouldn't affect the calcium binding. Though... If flouride... crystals(?) are harder than calcium crystals(?) then it might affect calcium homeostatis (like how myoglobin binds oxygen more tightly than haemoglobin which affects the kinetics).

I guess calcium deposits where calcium deposits aren't supposed to be are still calcium deposits where calcium deposits aren't supposed to be.

I don't think many of us were supposed to live past about 40.
