What foods cause chronic kidney disease?

Must Read

Consuming processed foods causes the leaky gut syndrome, which in turn increases the risk of kidney disease, says a new study by researchers at Monash University in Australia.

Certain harmful chemical compounds called Advanced glycation end products (AGEs) activate the body’s danger signals that lead to an inflammatory response and chronic kidney disease, says the study published in the journal Science Advances.

AGEs are found in heat-treated or processed foods, they are what give browned, roasted, fried, grilled, and baked foods their flavor and aroma.

Hazardous substances are present in french fries, bread, buns, chocolate, and cakes, warns the statement of Monash University.

The researchers note that the inflammatory response could be turned off by eating foods that contain high-strength starch fiber, which restores gut health and improves kidney health. These are oatmeal, rice, barley, beans, peas, cooked potatoes.

“Given the increasing interest in the effects of processed food on health, we believe that these findings represent an important step towards understanding and countering the detrimental features of the modern diet,” commented associate professor Melinda Coughlan, lead author of the study.

According to the research, the consumption of processed foods is also associated with the risk of mortality from different causes, diabetes, hypertension, obesity, cancer, and gastrointestinal diseases.

Scientists urge people to change their diets and use steaming and stewing to reduce the risk of health problems.
