In brief: Prescientific

There was a 1994 article from an obscure institution that makes no sense physiologically.
The article's claim that this controls the excretion of oxalic acid and thus oxalate stones hasn't been reproduced so far as i can tell, but has grown into the preposterous tale that the juice dissolves kidney stones -- if this were true, urologists would use it on themselves.
