Does anyone know if consuming a lot of dried dill seeds regularly has any bad side-effects? I want to eat about 15-25 grams of them per day to round out my calcium intake. They taste really pungent though, and I read that they kill bacteria in the gut. Any thoughts?

I don't actually know the answer, but you may be able to figure it out from these:
Constituents of dill (the chemicals labeled with fruit refer to those found in the seeds): http://www.ars-grin.gov/cgi-bin/duke/farmacy2.pl

However, I also suspect absorption problems, not to mention difficulty of eating that much dill seed. I'd rather eat lots of greens personally. And gnaw on some rib bones.
