malattierenaliThe Mediterranean diet? Among the many advantages of a diet based on whole grains, fruits, vegetables, legumes, fish, olive oil, nuts and olives, there would also be a lower risk of being able to suffer from kidney disease, including kidney failure. and kidney inflammation. According to a study by Columbia University , in fact, those who follow a Mediterranean diet have a good fifty percent less risk of developing chronic kidney failure and over forty percent less risk of suffering kidney damage or inflammation.

The study was published in the   Clinical Journal of the American Society of Nephrology. The reason is simple (and it is always the same, not only for kidney diseases but for many other diseases): it seems that those who prefer a diet whose pyramidal base is essentially vegetable and wholemeal (i.e. based on fruit, vegetables, cereals wholemeal, legumes, oil, nuts, dried fruit which should cover about eighty percent of our daily food consumption), is less likely to have health problems related to the consumption of industrial and refined foods, meats and saturated fats and even sugar . The latter suspected of straining the kidneys and affecting the development of diseases affecting them.
