Climate change increases risk of emergence of stones in kidneys, especially for people who have predisposition to this illness.

Temperature increase leads to dehydration of the organism, and it provokes higher concentration of calcium and other minerals in urine, according to the research conducted by scientists from Philadelphia.

The research conducted on 60 thousand people (adults and children from the different cities of the USA), found correlation between increase of average daily temperatures and emergence of stones in kidneys.

The American scientists considered a question in a context of how global warming influences population health. Beside climate change factors which increase emissions of greenhouse gases were observed too.

The incidence of an urolithic illness grows within the last 30 years, and this tendency will proceed. Children will suffer from it more than adults, scientists emphasize.
