Many people believe you should eat a varied diet because you could develop food allergies to foods you eat regularly, but the Kitavan diet mainly consists of sweet potato, coconut and some fish. We all know they don't suffer from diabetes or heart disease, but are they plagued by other diseases? I presume the Kitavans don't get much calcium and the little they do get probably isn't absorbed properly because of the oxalates in sweet potato and the phytic acid in coconut.
Could the constant ingestion of oxalates also induce a leaky gut, and cause potential inflammation?
I believe the problem is usually the reverse. Oxalates don't usually cause leaky guts, but leaky guts can really cause oxalate problems. Leaky guts allow an increased amount of oxalate into the blood stream and this causes excess inflammation plus other symptoms in your body.
