    Agata Blaszczak-Boxe, July 10, 2014 (CBS News)

    “The hotter it gets, the more people seek treatment for kidney stones, according to a new study that also predicts climate change may make this painful condition even more prevalent in the future…As daily temperatures rose above 50 degrees Fahrenheit (10 degrees Celsius), the risk of kidney stones [over the following 20 days and peaking in the following three days] increased in [pre-disposed] residents of Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas and Philadelphia, but not in Los Angeles…[T]he investigators examined medical records of 60,433 adults and children between 2005 and 2011, along with weather data from the five U.S. cities…High temperatures are related to dehydration, which in turn can lead to a higher concentration of calcium and other minerals in the urine that contribute to the development of kidney stones…[V]ery low outdoor temperatures also appeared to increase the risk of kidney stones…[perhaps because] people tend to spend more time indoors…[and exposed] to higher temperatures, dietary changes and less exercise [that] may increase their risk of kidney stones…[T]he condition has become more prevalent [as the average temperature has increased]…rising from about one in 20 people in 1994 to one in 11 in a 2012 study…” click here for more
