Controvertial: Tea traditionally has shown to be high in oxalate that can cause kidney stones. Green tea's oxalate content is much lower. But the medical evidence has been conflicting with some recent studies actually suggesting a reduction in the stone risk from even non-green teas! until the jury is out, stick to drinking water..No rx required and cheap!
