Q I have been told not to eat spinach raw.What other vegetables should not be eaten raw?

You may have been advised to limit your consumption of raw spinach and other oxalate or purine containing greens (e.g., Swiss chard, beet greens) which can cause problems for individuals with kidney and gallbladder concerns or gout. However, for most healthy individuals, regular intake of oxalates and purines from the diet is not a concern. In this case, raw greens can be an important addition to the diet to help ensure optimal nutrition.
