What are the good and bad news of eating spinach?

It's rich in iron, magnesium, vitamins K and C, and folic acid, B2, and B6. It supports the eyes preventing macular degeneration and is good for inflammation. However, spinach has oxalates, which can cause kidney stones. You can steam your spinach, you can add lemon juice, potassium citrate, and adding calcium (which binds with oxalates in the digestive system). But make sure spinach is organic to prevent chemicals. 

However, the health benefits of spinach are huge.
