Myth: Most of us never get enough calcium.

Truth: With the ever-growing number of calcium-fortified foods – including Total cereal with 1,000 milligrams per serving – it is becoming all too easy to get too much. Regularly consuming 2,500 milligrams a day of calcium may cause kidney stones, kidney damage and block the absorption of other important nutrients. Too much of a good thing may not be good for you.
