more greens -yes but can effect potassium levels

Expert:  DrRussMD replied 3 years ago.
No
That is generally not a problem.
All foods and all vegetables contain potassium.
Greens have as much calcium per cup as milk.
There is not excessive potassium, nor should that be a concern, unless you have specific forms of renal disease.
Even then, the postassium in food is not generally a problem, just don't add supplements.
