Researchers from Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston have found that drinking large amounts of sugary sodas and fruit drinks might raise your odds for painful kidney stones. Drinking extra fluids, which usually help prevent stones from forming, may come with varying risks or benefits. Drinks such as coffee, tea and orange juice are associated with a lower risk of kidney stone formation.
The study tracked more than 194,000 people for a period of over eight years. The subjects of the study were questioned about their medical history, lifestyle and medications. Moreover, their diet pattern was examined every four years.
It was found that those who drank one or more servings of sugar-sweetened soda daily had a 23 percent higher risk for kidney stones than those who drank less than one serving per week. Even those who drank sugary beverages other than soda, such as fruit punch, increased the risk of kidney stones.
The detailed study findings were published in the Clinical Journal of the American Society of Nephrology.
