30 Bananas a Day!

Hello everyone, I just foraged a giant box of carambola (starfruit). Probably worth around $100 USD (maybe more).

I have a question. I understand that starfruit is quite high in oxalic acid. Did some research and apparently it puts some strain on the kidneys, anyone heard of this? Anybody have any details or experiences to share?

Please please please, this is very important to me.

Thanks <3

Thanks Michele. I googled this and found a pretty helpful post on Vegsource relating to it.
The amazing Jon directed me to these Vegsource threads:

I stumbled upon this pretty helpful one (since I had a problem with inflammation myself, of the kidneys):

Also found this Wikipedia article quite educational:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oxalic_acid

But I'm still not sure what to 'believe'. I have a very Hygienic way of thinking, but still have my doubts that consuming so much of it will have some negative effect on me.
I wouldn't worry about it, there's oxalic acid in many foods, and if you do some research you will see it is buffered by minerals, particularly calcium I believe... and is really no big deal.
Well, see the thing is I've been recovering from renal failure since Feb 2008.
