1. is it possible to overdose on calcium?
Excessive calcium intake can be very harmful to the human body. Excessive use of calcium can increase the risk of heart attacks and vascular occlusions. If more than 1500 mg of calcium is consumed per day, the excess calcium is excreted through the urinary tract. In people with impaired kidney function, this can cause kidney stones in severe cases.
