The environmental wackos apparently will leave no stone unturned in order to make a crises out of normal climate change cycles.

This is why we must keep capital punishment viable.

Amen HAZMAT! This is a huge waste of money and time to study a phenomenon that does not exist.

I'm sure you really meant no "kidney" stone unturned.

Drink distilled water? Isn't there something you can drink to prevent the crystals from forming?

My neighbor drank a lot of ice tea, his doc said it caused stones. Sounds like a Bible Belt disease.

Drink a lot of beer for healthy kidneys.

When your pee looks the color of lemonade, you are hydrated. When it looks like apple juice, you are dehydrated.

The water in the Midwest may have a lot of dissolved minerals. Well water often is 'hard" with minerals, but it tastes good.

I know 3 different people who in the last couple of weeks passed stones and I don't for a second think that it has anything to do with the so-called "global warming".

Listening to Al Gore however is enough to make anyone sick.

I moved to Florida from NH in 1997 and didn't drink enough liquids. Since then, I've had 6 kidney stones and learned to drink a lot more water. Heat definitely has something to do with the formation of kidney stones. I'm living proof. It must be convenient for those on this board, who have no experience at all, to completely discredit the findings of this report. Lack of thought will get you nowhere you should be.

Kidney stones are not new. To come up with a study to link stones to global warming is more crap from the agenda folks.

I was born and raised here. Never had a stone until 2006 (I was 49 year old) and haven't had one since. That was the first comment from the nurse. You don't drink enough fluids. I coached ball, lead a scout troop and am married to a nurse. I know about keeping hydrated.

To point to global warming is an absolute joke. "You can lead a horse to water...". On a vacation to Arizona, the locals were warning me of dehydration. They know that living in a desert, you need to keep drinking. I know it was hotter than S. Fla and definately hotter than NH. To say these people will now develop kidney stones because global warming has entered the picture and they have no choice but to suffer unless we stop greenhouse gases is moronic.

Sounds to me like a bunch of bunk (as is the entire "global warming" hoax being foisted upon an increasingly ill-educated American society).

Paraphrasing Jerry McGuire: "Show me the evidence!"

Besides, when most people work out of doors, they increase their water/fluid consumption--the same advice they'd get from their doctors.

I guess the year 2050 is going to be a really bad year!

Ok, Here we go.....

How long before some Lawyer takes the case of some one with reoccuring Kidney stones wanting to sue those that are MAJOR contributors to Global Warming. Hmmmm something like suing the tobacco companies. I say start with Al Gore and his 3 mansions. Oh I know there's no warning label on Mother Nature (i.e.- "Hot Coffee")

The global warming hucksters may be reaching too far and may be about to blow the whole thing.

They have been able to bring converts into the fold with Polar Bears and floods, but kidney stones?

I think they've jumped the shark.

We should just all move to Alaska. No more kidney stones, ever.

Tell me when the Earths temperature goes to 500 degrees, not a .00001 % increase followed by a .00001 decrease the next decade. Stop the Global Warming terror.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
