30 Bananas a Day!

Well since no one really replies to posts here anymore, I just have been digging through the discussion archives in search of answers to my questions, one being of a recent post I did. I have calcium deposits on my ribs and get them around my eyes sometimes. A chiropractor found them on my ribs in a recent xray. He said this was dangerous if it spread to my organs but my problems would be solved if I ingested k2 from Natto. I went and got a good supplement instead, as I wasn't interested in eating super salty Natto. Have yet to get many replies on that thread. 

In the meantime...

Was sitting here drinking a 31 date smoothie and munching a big bowl of spinach and wanted to remind myself what the deal is with oxalates.  I found this awesome thread:

So oxalates inhibit calcium and iron assimilation/absorption... and dates are high in oxalates??I had no idea.

I also was recently prescribed iron my my doctor because my levels were low. This could be what the problem is.  I love date smoothies (Dateorade) because I prefer the taste over bananas, and they are easier to keep in the house with roommates than bananas (fruit flies and smell), however now I'm having second thoughts on my daily consumption and main calorie source coming from dateorade.  

This is life changing for me to discover this.  I never have heard any warnings about consuming dates or that they were high in oxalates. And despite the low activity of this site, I am so grateful for the archived threads still available.
