    WEDNESDAY, May 24 (HealthDay News) -- Drinking lemonade could help prevent painful kidney stones, new research shows.

    Regular consumption of the refreshing drink -- or even lemon juice mixed with water -- may increase the production of urinary citrate, a chemical in the urine that prevents the formation of crystals that may build up into kidney stones.

    So conclude two studies presented Tuesday at the American Urological Association annual meeting in Atlanta.

    This is cool. I drink hot lemon water all the time. I didn't know I was being so good to myself.
    Thanks DK

    Since I pass around three a year, I am going to start drinking lemonade. Or when I get one, I could just have DP come with painkillers and some whiskey! LOL

    Thanks DK, I'm off to the store to get my lemonade.
