The results intimate that low-fat dairy products and plants could have key kidney stone fighting properties.

The Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension effectively reduces blood pressure; it includes fruits, vegetables, legumes, nuts, dairy products and whole grains. It includes few sweetened beverages and red and processed meats.

This diet is also said to reduce the risk of developing kidney stones.
