Summary: Meat eating subjects were compared to vegetarians. Higher protein intake, particulary animal protein, was linked to higher urinary calcium excretion. Higher calcium intake was linked to decreased oxalate excretion. Higher vegetable protein intake, but not meat protein intake, was linked to higher urinary oxalate excretion.

Key Takeaways

Based on urinary excretion, meat based diets were higher in calcium and lower in oxalates and vegetarian diets were higher in oxalates.

Vegetarian Diets Have More Oxalates and Less Calcium Than Meat Based Diets
