More information on kidney stone causes

I just posted a post on some of the more common kidney stone causes and also listed some suggestions for preventing their development. You can read part one on kidney stone causes here

In researching just a bit more, I found some information suggesting that eating foods that contain a substances called Oxalates may contribute to the development of calcium oxalates kidney stones so if you are prone to those, you may want to avoid foods that are high in oxalates.

According to The National Kidney and Neurologic Diseases Clearing House (whew, try saying that three times fast) foods that are high in oxalates include:
sweet potatoes
okra
chocolate
beets
wheat germ
chard
rhubarb
peanuts
black tea
soybean crackers

Odd that they listed soybean crackers but not soy in general. Not sure why.

Anyway, there’s more info on causes of kidney stones, symptoms and traditional treatments there on that site.
