Your Fault: Kidney Stones To Get Worse From Climate Crisis (scam)

Rising temperatures from climate change will lead to more kidney stone cases, a new study has found.

Dr. Gregory Tasian is a pediatric urologist at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and the lead author of the study, which was published Monday in the peer-reviewed journal Scientific Reports.

“While it is impossible to predict with certainty how future policies will slow or hasten greenhouse gas emission and anthropogenic climate change… our analysis suggests that a warming planet will likely cause an increased burden of kidney stone disease on healthcare systems,” Dr. Tasian said in a press release.

Kidney stones are hard mineral deposits that can be very painful when passed through the urinary system. They can form for a variety of reasons, including diet, genetics, obesity and taking certain medications and supplements. According to the study, heat also plays a factor.

Are we able to compare this to kidney stone incidence during previous Holocene warm and cool periods?

To see how climate change could impact the prevalence of kidney stones, the researchers created a model based on South Carolina kidney stone case and climate data from 1997 to 2014. That information was then used to create two forecasts: one based on aggressive greenhouse gas reductions, and another based on unhindered emissions.

Computer models. Sigh. So, literally using data from a generally warm state during a limited time period, and blaming ‘climate change’. What happens if this doesn’t happen? The people involved with the study will most likely be gone, so, who gets blamed for the scaremongering?

    Does this mean that there is a higher incidence of kidney stones in the Southern States than in say, the Dakotas or New England? How about in the Hawaiian Islands? Anybody? Anybody? Beuler?

      Finally, a Covian asking a legitimate scientific question!! Kudos!

      It appears the answer is “Yes”. It appears kidney stones are more prevalent in warm, humid regions likely due to the inefficiency of human cooling mechanisms (sweating) in humid regions. Sty hydrated!

      Kidney stones are more frequently seen in warmer climates and during the summer months. This may be due to dehydration with excretion of lower than usual volumes and increased concentration of urine.

      US researchers say that kidney stones may become more common as the temperature rises across North America and causes more people to become dehydrated.

      The study is the work of researchers at the University of Texas (UT) Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas, and is published in the 15th July issue of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS).

      Kidney stone incidence is higher in the warmer parts of the US and the southeast in particular, presumably because of fluid loss in warmer climates.

      Their study found that more urinary stone surgeries occurred in regions with more rain and higher temperatures. These results intrigued Dallas because “they explained an unanswered trend in the larger national trend.”

      Further studies are needed to explore why exactly this association exists, but Dallas said he and his colleagues have a theory: “We hypothesize that the increased rate of stone burden in hot climates with higher precipitation could be related to the increased inefficiency of human body thermoregulation in wet heat verses dry heat. In other words sweating is less efficient in very humid hot conditions, causing further sweating and fluid loss. And dehydration has been shown to cause kidney stones.”

    “Their model found…”. What a model “finds” isn’t evidence of anything.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Regions of warm, humid weather appear to have higher incidence of kidney stones. “Models” that predict more warm, humid weather would predict more kidney stones. Stay hydrated.
