How are kidney stones formed?
And about the way kidney stones are formed, a study conducted by a group of scientists from the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign, USA, revealed that kidney stones dissolve and disintegrate and return to accumulation and growth again.
According to the journal Scientific Reports, which published the results of the study, it became clear to scientists that the structure of kidney stones is similar to natural mineral formations, even partially disintegrating and returning to grow again.
“The nucleus of the gravel is generated by the adhesion of calcium oxalate crystals CaC2O4, which begins to grow layer after layer of organic matter and oxalate. As it grows, one or more layers can disintegrate, only to grow again after that.”
It should be noted that 10% of the world's population suffers from kidney stones, and calcium oxalate is the component of approximately 70% of them.
