Eat THIS and Kidney Stone Risk SOARS 88%!
Kidney stones are a 10 out of 10 when it comes to pain.
In fact, some say they’re one of the only ways for a man to experience the level of pain caused by childbirth.
Yes, it IS that bad.
About 12 percent of Americans will experience a kidney stone in their lifetime—a number that’s growing by the year.
Here’s how to make sure you’re not one of them.
Kidney stones are hard deposits of minerals and salts that form into pebbles inside your kidneys.
Poor diet and excess weight are two of the main risk factors for developing the agonizing condition.
But researchers recently identified a specific food to skip if you want to AVOID kidney stones.
They used data from more than 28,000 people who participated in the US National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey.
Even after accounting for factors like age, smoking, and weight, they found a “positive and consistent” connection between added sugar intake and kidney stone incidence.
In fact, those folks who ate the most sugar had a 39 percent increased risk of kidney stones compared to those with the lowest intake.
And in participants who got 25 percent of their total energy intake from sugar, there was a stunning 88 percent increased risk (compared to those who only got 5 percent of total energy from sugar).
But if you’re in this category, kidney stones are only ONE of your worries…
Because you could be on the fast track to disease and early death.
But limiting the sugar in your diet will reduce your risk of diabetes, heart disease, strokes, malnutrition, and even aging.
The less sugar you eat, the better.
This goes for your kidneys, your longevity, and everything in between.
P.S. You SHOULD kick added sugars to the curb. But switching to “zero-calorie” or “sugar-free” options is NOT the way to do it. Making THAT switch could be a disaster. Here’s why.
