Cheese has more cal: Also yogurt has mor calcium than milk. Tums (calcium carbonate) has a lot of calcium. Mind you, much calcium intake has its problems of increasing kidney stone and possibly heart disease in recent literature published in british med journal.Benefit of decreasing fractures with calcium intake is not as we thought before! oranges, bananas, tomato sauce v8, potatoes are rich in potassium. Avoid them if kidney disease.
