Rx for kid­neys?

Reader's Digest (India) - - Rd Health -

Ex­er­cise and healthy bev­er­ages seem to be the best way to keep the kid­neys healthy. Drink­ing one or more serv­ings of sug­ar­sweet­ened drinks a day was linked to a 23 per­cent in­crease in kid­ney stone risk in a group of nearly 195,000 per­sons en­rolled in three ma­jor long-term stud­ies. Fre­quent drinkers of orange juice, cof­fee, tea, even wine and beer in the study had a less­ened risk of the painful stones. Mean­while, another group of re­searchers re­ported that mod­er­ate ex­er­cise—no more than three hours of brisk walk­ing weekly—seemed to re­duce post­menopausal women’s risk for de­vel­op­ing kid­ney stones.

Com­pounds in orange juice may keep kid­ney stones from form­ing.
