When there is a buildup of calcium in the body tissues, calcification occurs causing the tissues to harden over time (Perper, 2006). This process can occur in many organs and can either benefit or hinder the body. As calcium deposits in other parts of the body, other than bone, membrane calcification takes place. Depending on the location of calcification, severe organ and blood vessels problems can result. The process of calcification is still poorly understood in the scientific community. Picture 18 below shows an early term fetus that was fully calcified in a woman’s body.
