Why shouldn’t pregnant women eat lamb’s quarters?

Lamb’s quarters contain a significant amount of oxalic acid. Oxalic acid has the tendency to bind with calcium, reducing the availability of it for providing nutrition to your body. Moreover, the plant is an abortifacient, meaning one which can cause an abortion.
