Mumbai: Kidney stones can be incredibly painful for sufferers, and now a new study has found that a beer a day, keeps kidney stones and urologists away.
The study stated that people who reported drinking beer frequently had a 50 percent lower risk of developing kidney stones than people who did not consume alcoholic beverages. Alcoholics from all over the world participated in this prospective study, and phase 4 clinical trials will even answer, if other alcoholic beverages, like mixing a concoction of vodka and soda, help dissolve kidney stones.
In an exclusive interview with the Quackdoses, Dr. Vijay Mallaya, the principal investigator of the study said, “Beer is a diuretic, meaning you have an urge to urinate even more than what babies without diapers do; and urination, in turn, helps flush small stones from your kidneys before they get bigger. Daily dose of moderate amount of beer can reduce your risk of giving a shit about kidney stones. What is different regarding this revolutionary study was that we also tried to integrate a stone prevention ‘Chakna’ diet into our beer drinking recommendations. It is true that alcohol kills people, but imagine how many are born because of it!”
Unconfirmed sources have claimed that another study is underway, if drinking alcoholic beverages before pregnancy can cause pregnancy.
