There are countless reasons why you should NOT drink too much beer but now there's a reason to keep it up! The latest study found in the Clinical Journal of the American Society of Nephrology says drinking a beer a day reduces the risk of kidney stones by 41 percent! This is great news for all RESPONSIBLE beer drinkers because kidney stones can be brutal, ask anyone who's had 'em. They say drinking coffee and wine also help, as coffee and wine reduce the risk by between 26 and 33 percent.
This study has BAD NEWS for soda drinkers...It says people who drink one or more sugar-sweetened sodas per day are looking at a 23- to 33-percent higher risk of developing kidney stones. OUCH.
