Cause Kidney Stones Or Cure Them
You may hear mixed opinions as to the
effect soft drinks have towards kidney stones. Some experts advise soft
drinks may directly influence the onset of kidney stones,
indicate soft drinks in moderation may actually assist in curing kidney
stones. So who is correct ?
The best way to answer that question is
analyzing the cause of kidney stones. Kidney stones are actually caused
by a lack of hydration, the body needs water to continually flush the
system. It is recommended we drink 8 to 10 glass of water a day. People
who drink soft drinks and coffee typically do not drink enough water
and are not able to properly flush the bladder and kidneys. These
people are more likely to develop
kidney stones in their lifetime. Soft
drinks do not cause kidney stones, they are consequential damage
resulting from insufficient water intake.
How can soft drinks be beneficial in
curing kidney stones ? The fact that soft drink manufacturers use
phosphoric acid (a natural acid) as an ingredient in soft drinks.
Phosphoric acid actually assists in dissolving kidney stones. A recent
study was conducted
on over 1000 men who suffered from kidney stones, they each consumed at
least 5 ounces of soft drinks per day. During a 3 year experiment, half
the men did not consume any soft drinks, the other half consumed at
least 5 ounces of their preferred cola (containing phosphoric acid).
The conclusion of the experiment revealed people who consumed soft
one-third less likely to develop kidney stones than the men who
completely refrained from soft drinks. Researchers were surprised to
find that phosphoric acid slowly dissolved kidney stones and reduced
kidney stone formation.
To be very clear we are not recommending
to increase your soft drink consumption, while phosphoric acid does
have it's benefits soft drinks have been related to many other medical
conditions such as diabetes. If you suspect or have confirmed you have
