The Kidney Stone Ride

If you’ve EVER had a kidney stone problem, you will be thrilled to learn the latest news!  Something as simple as a moderately-intense roller coaster ride could help your body pass small kidney stones.  

Dr. David Wartinger, Professor of Urology at the Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine in East Lansing, Michigan, and his research team conducted research using the Big Thunder Mountain Railroad and Space Mountain Roller Coaster ride at Disney World in Orlando, Florida.  According to sources, they created a silicone model of a kidney holding urine and three kidney stones at various sizes.  The kidney pack was placed in a backpack and placed on 60 roller coaster rides.
