I made the mistake of being what I thought was "super healthy" for 6 months and ate hemp protein, spinach salads and kale smoothies regularly. I ended up going super grey in no time flat, pains in my side and pains in my joints. Then, someone told me not to eat too much kale because of the oxalates. I was like, "what are you talking about?" Then, I did research. I discovered that oxalates form "shards" that lodge in your kidneys and joints causing kidney stones and arthritis-like conditions. I also found a study showing that farmers were able to turn sheep's wool grey simply by changing their diet to a kale-based feed. They were able to reproduce this "grey wool" side-effect repeatedly simply by changing the feed; the sheep had rings of grey as a result of the period of time they were on the kale-based feed.

I had hoped when I stopped eating so many oxalates my grey would reverse, but apparently it doesn't work so well for humans as it does for sheep. It has not progressed at all since in the last 4 years, which is good, but since I went so grey so quickly it's not really that great. My joint pain and kidney pains did go away, however, so that's good.

I see popular articles claiming that kale is GOOD for maintaining hair color.


Popular articles and blogs are not reliable sources of information.


Please provide a link to a peer-reviewed study that shows that kale-consumption causes gray hair.

Look at soylent.
And know how close we have already come to an old science fiction movie.
Don't I know it. Seems those far-fetched "never happen here" movies were dead on Interstellar is a good flic because of the story, not much on actors, but should be called "true for our future". Greed, and ego, a lethal combination
