Question

A person suffering from kidney stones is advised to avoid excess intake of spinach and beetroots in his diet. What could be the possible reason?


  1. Spinach and beet root have more calcium oxalate.

  2. Spinach and beet root have more water content.

  3. Spinach and beet root's unwanted digested products cannot be filtered.

  4. Spinach and beetroot pigments have adverse affects on health.


Solution

The correct option is A

Spinach and beet root have more calcium oxalate.


Vegetables such as spinach and beetroots are known to contain moderate amounts of soluble and insoluble oxalates. Soluble oxalates, when consumed, have the ability to bind to calcium in the spinach and the beetroot and any calcium in foods consumed with the spinach and beetroot, reducing the absorption of soluble oxalate. So they are not included in the diet to avoid further complications in a person suffering from kidney stones.
