Maybe you should worry but for other reasons

In Response To: Does one need to worry about oxalates? Follow O diet but (sm (Sue - 0)

I would not be concerned with kidney stones if you eat a balanced diet, drink plenty of good quality water and have no case history within your family. However, you are an O and O's need plenty of Calcium. Plants high in oxalic acid, in particular rhubarb, spinach, Swiss chard and other leafy greens, have the tendency to bind with Calcium. To be specific, oxalic acid removes calcium from the blood and Calcium is discharged as Calcium Oxalate with your urin.

To answer a follow-up question you might ask: Boiling dilutes some of the plant oxalates but they combine more easily with blood Calcium after boiling the plant, so it's a toss-up.

My answer is not to supplement with extra Calcium but to eat everything in moderation and pay particular attention to the MAGNESIUM / Calcium level. For me getting enough Magnesium is more important than Calcium.
