In many plants, oxalate crystals are present. These relatively large microcrystals have the potential to inflict mechanical injury. On the other hand, ionic, soluble, and nano-crystal forms of oxalate are readily absorbed. Bioaccumulation in humans is well documented. Crystals and ionic oxalate are associated with pain and both functional and chronic disorders. Today’s many health challenges have led people to select foods purported to be healthier, many of which are high in oxalate. Modern…

Nutritional and anti-nutritional composition of Diospyros mespiliformis and Hyphaene petersiana fruits from Namibia
TLDR
The results of this study signify that the two wild fruits have high concentrations of essential minerals and low anti-nutrients; thus their consumption is recommended, especially in poor settings.
Metal Recovery Using Oxalate Chemistry: A Technical Review
Energy-efficient metal recovery and separation processes from a mixture of valuable metals are vital to the metallurgy and recycling industries. Oxalate has been identified as a sustainable reagent...

To the Editor: —The case of death after eating rhubarb leaves (The Journal, Aug. 23, 1919, p. 627) deserves, I think, some further discussion. It seems to be established that oxalic acid is one of

Factors related to colonization with Oxalobacter formigenes in U.S. adults.
TLDR
There is much to learn about how an individual acquires the organism and which factors affect persistence of colonization, and some antibiotics markedly affect colonization with O. formigenes.
Influence of a high-oxalate diet on intestinal oxalate absorption
TLDR
The effect of a high-oxalate diet on oxalate absorption, not merely on the frequently studied increased oxalates excretion, was interested in.
Oxalate crystal deposition disease
TLDR
Novel findings in the understanding of the molecular and enzymatic aspects of primary hyperoxalurias have provided a more rational basis for the management and prevention of oxalate crystal deposition disease.
Dietary risk factors for hyperoxaluria in calcium oxalate stone formers.
TLDR
Findings suggest that hyperoxaluria predominantly results from increased endogenous production and from intestinal hyperabsorption of oxalate, partly caused by an insufficient supply or low availability of calcium for complexation with oxalates in the intestinal lumen.

Bone involvement in the patient pre-sumably started in the rich vascular network of the bone marrow and, with a component of renal osteodystrophy, led to a pathological fracture.
