Kidney Stones in Kids!

Doctors are reporting a “steep rise” in the number of young children with kidney stones, according to anecdotal data cited by The New York Times.

“In China recently, many children who drank milk tainted with melamine – a toxic chemical illegally added to watered-down milk to inflate the protein count – developed kidney stones,” the paper says.  “The increase in the United States is attributed to a host of factors, including a food additive that is both legal and ubiquitous: SALT!

Starting here at home in El Cajon, we are concerned about your children too.

Experts say children are consuming too much salt and too little water.

The also blame ‘obesity’ for the increase in the number of pediatric kidney stone cases that doctors are seeing across the USA.  Regular chiropractic care is a good health tip for your children.

“The incidence of kidney stones in adults has also been rising, especially in women, and experts say they see more adults in their 20s and 30s with stones; in the past, it was more common in adults in their 40s and 50s, the paper says.

Are your children drinking enough good pH water?  If not, you need to think about what you’re feeding them and letting them drink.

Their health depends on your choices.
