Kidney stones are caused by drinking milk.

Fact

Milk consumption does not lead to the development of kidney stones. Some research suggests that drinking milk is associated with lower rates of kidney stone formation. A four-year study in men aged 40 to 75 found that those who consumed a calcium-rich diet (1,326 mg calcium/day) had a 34 percent lower risk of kidney stones than men who consumed only 516 mg calcium per day. Talk to your health professional regarding kidney stones prior to making any dietary changes.
