Each year roughly about 24,000 new cases of kidney cancer are diagnosed in the United States! Wow that is a lot of cases to be popping up each year, what is even more staggering is about 100,000 people die each year due to the condition. You may be asking how can you keep this from happening to you. To start you need to cut the processed sodas and sugary drinks and drink more water.
Your kidneys are working every minute of the day to help process out waste created by the body.
Uric Acid- Nucleotide breakdown from the liver.
Urochrome- Hemoglobin breakdown from liver.
Water- Food and waste breakdown along with inorganic food and water.
You kidneys are working to eliminate waste from the blood, which helps to regulate body water concentration, regulates blood pressure, and maintains a constant blood pH. So much more is happening then just relieving your bladder. You are constantly consuming food and beverages, while you digestion works to breakdown useable sources of nutrients, it separates what can be used and what is waste. The waste then goes to its correct department to be eliminated through lungs, skin, liver, kidneys, or intestines.
On a side note, the external sphincter can sometimes be damaged in both men and woman, during surgeries and childbirth. This is why with some woman when we sneeze, cough, or do jumping jacks, we might leak. This is actually very common and why exercise is so important before and after birth. For men the condition can happen due to an injury from prostate surgery. This condition is known as urinary incontinence, when the muscles are damaged or weakened.
Foods that help keep the Kidneys healthy.
- Pumpkin seeds
- Green Vegetables
- Legumes and seeds
- Limit processed foods and beverages, and reduce toxic chemicals by eating a organic diet.
