Sweetened colas increase kidney stone risk (and tea and coffee lower it)

Reading time: 1 minute

Kidney stones are extremely painful-and they can be brought on by drinking sweetened colas and sodas, while people who usually drink tea, coffee or orange juice are far less likely to suffer from them.
People who drink one or more sugar-sweetened drinks a day are 23 per cent more likely to develop kidney stones compared to someone who rarely, or never, drinks sodas and colas.
Drinks such as tea, coffee and orange juice appear to have a protective effect, and people who regularly drink these beverages are far less likely to develop kidney stones, say researchers from the Brigham and Women’s Hospital who made the discovery after they analysed the health and lifestyles of 194,095 people for around eight years.
