pH is a measure of the hydrogen concentration in solution.  Calcium in
solution is a a divalent cation.  If i add 100's of millimoloes of calcium
to a pH standard, it will not move.  On top of getting a physiology book,
maybe you should get a general chemistry book as well.  The body controls
pH by the bicarbonate carbonate buffer system.
