No. Since the most common type of kidney stone is calcium oxalate, it is a common misconception that a high intake of calcium can increase one’s risk of developing kidney stones. In fact, including foods rich in dietary calcium, such as milk, yogurt, cheese, fortified milk alternatives, white beans, tahini, almonds and chia seeds, will actually decrease your risk of developing kidney stones. Dietary calcium binds to oxalate before it gets to the kidneys helping to prevent stones. It is unclear whether taking calcium in the form of a supplement will have the same beneficial effect.
