Fruits & Vegetables Prevent Kidney Stones

A recent study has shown that eating a healthy diet consisting of high intake of fruits, vegetables, nuts and legumes, low-fat dairy products, and whole grains coupled with low intake of salt, sweetened beverages, and red and processed meats not only prevents metabolic problems like high blood pressure and diabetes but it also prevents the formation of kidney stones.

Researchers have found another reason to eat well: a healthy diet helps prevent kidney stones. Loading up on fruits, vegetables, nuts, low-fat dairy products, and whole grains, while limiting salt, red and processed meats, and sweetened beverages is an effective way to ward off kidney stones
The article also says that such a diet contained higher levels of calcium, potassium, magnesium, oxalate, and vitamin C while having a lower amount of sodium, things that are beneficial to overall health.
