Does the oxalic acid in spinach inhibit the absorption of calcium and iron?

Most of the recipes contain some sort of raw leafy greens. I have read that oxalic acid in raw spinach inhibits the absorption of calcium and iron.   I am not sure about kale or other greens. I would appreciate you advice?  Also I have read that the brassicas need to be cooked if you are hypo-thyroid.  Your comments would be appreciated.
