In brief: No

Beets contain oxalates, which can increase the risk of kidney stones.
Therefore, beets should not be eaten in large quantities by anyone with a history of kidney stones or kidney disease. Eating beets can also cause urine to turn red temporarily which can look frightening, but isn’t a cause for alarm.
