Global Warming and Kidney Stones

Ok, maybe that is a bit extreme.

Researchers at the University of Texas have published a report in which they draw a relationship between kidney stones and Global Warming.

Per the report, kidney stones can be caused to dehydration, either due to just not drinking enough, or by constant exposure to high heat.

If global warming trends continue as projected by the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change in 2007, the United States can expect as much as a 30 percent growth in kidney stone disease in some of its driest areas, said the findings published in Monday’s Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

Ok, so we’re not all gonna die, but it sure will hurt!
