Yes, you can take too much calcium, according to Dr. Toohey, who says that 2500 mg. is the maximum amount one should consume, whether by diet or supplements. You can read about Dr. Toohey's opinion here: http://www.chronicfatigue.org/What's%20New.html Evidently when you take in too much calcium, it can cause other health problems such as kidney stones.
