Many studies convince us that healthy eating, consuming more fruits and vegetables while moderating intake of carbs, fat, and meats, reduces cardiovascular diseases and diabetes. Now an Australian meta-analysis presents proof that such a moderating diet will also keep your kidneys in work order.
The researchers analyzed 18 separate studies following some 630,000 participants over about 10 years. A consistently healthy diet was associated with a 30% lower incidence of kidney disease.
One study after another sings the praises of abundant fruits and vegetables in your diet. If you want a long life, you must respect and maintain your body’s equipment and especially your brains, heart, lungs, kidneys, and liver.
