Global Warming and Kidney Stones

May 16, 2008

Global warming may lead to an increase in kidney stones disease.

Rising global temperatures could lead to an increase in kidney stones, according to research presented at the 103rd Annual Scientific Meeting of the American Urological Association (AUA). Dehydration has been linked to stone disease, particularly in warmer climates, and global warming will exacerbate this effect. As a result, the prevalence of stone disease may increase, along with the costs of treating the condition.

Objective science at its best.

    It doesn’t teach you anything about food, your given a nubmer of points that you can eat in a day. The problem I have with that is jello has 3 points , as if jello is a good food choice.I’d rather you be able to go anywhere and look at a plate of food or what’s on the menu and be able to make good choices.
