Phosphorus overdose, Toxic effects of excess Intake

When the diet is high in phosphorus, calcium may be lost in the urine, increasing the risk of disorders such as kidney stones, osteoporosis and atherosclerosis. Soda drinks which contain large amounts of phosphoric acid may contribute to these harmful effects.

High levels of phosphorus also decrease vitamin D levels. This may increase the risk of bone disorders and cancer. A 1997 UK study involving 376 heart disease patients found a relationship between high phosphorus levels and the severity of coronary heart disease.
