American Society of Nephrology via EurekAlert!
Three new studies suggest that controlling dietary acid intake could help improve kidney health.

This acid load can be detrimental to a variety of tissues and processes. Research suggests that consuming more fruits and vegetables — which are highly alkaline — may help counteract these effects.

Boston Children's Hospital via EurekAlert!

These boys were more likely to start engaging in risky behaviors, including drug use and frequent binge drinking.
