Diet: Meat-Heavy Diet Increases Kidney Failure Risk for Kidney Disease Patients.

Individuals who suffer from kidney disease and routinely consume meat appear to have a greater risk for kidney failure due to the acidic nature of their diet. An analysis of nearly 1,500 kidney disease patients over a 14-year period revealed that those who consumed meat-heavy high-acid diets had a 300% greater risk for kidney failure than those who consumed fruit and vegetable-heavy low-acid diets.
