Too much salt in one's diet increases the risk of contracting kidney problems, says a new research.
Researchers have shown that declines in kidney function are detectable long before the emergence of other obesity-related diseases such as diabetes and high blood pressure.
Two new studies have highlighted the potential negative effects that soft drinks and sugar can have on kidney health.
A diet rich in wheat flour and animal protein produces an acidic environment in the body that worsens with age as kidney function declines.
Scientists have found that adverse conditions in the womb can affect kidney development in the foetus and have serious health implications for the child even decades later.
