Seems cola drinks (not non-cola sodas though) can increase the risk of kidney disease. Yet more bad news for our beloved cracker diet of RC and Moonpie. From today’s NYTimes:
The authors of the study say more research is needed, but their findings support the long-held notion that something about cola — the phosphoric acid, for example, or the ability of cola to pull calcium from bones — seems to increase the risk of kidney stones, renal failure and other conditions affecting the kidneys.
Trivia question: is RC Cola even on the market nowadays? If so, where?
