Dr. Oz played a game called Eat the Clock with Phil and David to help learn about what foods cause kidney stones and what foods help to prevent kidney stones. Since men are more likely to get kidney stones than women, share this information with all of the important men in your life!
Here is the list of foods – which do you think cause kidney stones and which help prevent kidney stones?
1. Black Tea
4. Potato Chips
Here are the answers:
Oxalate Foods Cause Kidney Stones:
Foods with oxalate cause kidney stones because oxalate helps add deposits to the stones. High oxalate foods include black tea, beets, spinach, and potato chips.
Vitamin C Foods Prevent Kidney Stones:
Oranges, yogurt, water (because of dilution) and lentils are all great at helping you to prevent getting kidney stones.
And the final bonus question… what percentage of men get kidney stones at some point during their lives? 12%
