Is Too Much Yogurt Bad for You?

Eating yogurt does offer health benefits, but like many other foods, eating too much does pose adverse effects. Consuming too much yogurt reduces the nutrients the body needs on a daily basis.

Yogurt is a high calcium food and ingesting too much calcium can create problems, including prostate cancer and kidney stones. Ingesting large amounts of calcium can also cause a build-up in the blood vessels.

A container of yogurt contains high levels of bacteria, which if ingested in large amounts can create digestive issues. Issues range from diarrhea, bloating, gas and sour stomach.

Yogurt is a healthy food when it is eaten in moderation.
