Study: Kidney stone, sugary drinks linked?

Thursday, May 23, 2013

A new study says adults who drink at least one sugar sweetened drink a day are more likely to develop kidney stones.

Researchers followed almost 200,000 people over eight years.

They found that people who drank a sugary drink a day had a 23-percent chance of developing kidney stones than ones that did not.

However, people who drank coffee, tea and beer had a lower risk. The study is in "The Clinical Journal of the American Society of Nephrology."
