What if I eat too many dates? Will it cause a kidney stone problem?

If you are prone to kidney stones, we recommend avoiding foods high in oxalates. Dates are relatively high in oxalates, so eating them should be in moderation. However, if you are not prone to kidney stones, eating 3-6 dates per day should not cause any problems.
