Animal protein is harmful for the kidneys and their function.  Conversely, plant-based diets are beneficial to kidney function.

Kidneys perform the life-sustaining role of filtering and returning to the bloodstream about 200 quarts of fluid every 24 hours.

A primary function of the kidneys is to remove waste and excess fluid from the body through urine.  Producing urine involves complex steps of excretion and reabsorption and is necessary to maintain an appropriate balance of the body’s salt, potassium, acid, and chemicals.  Additionally, kidneys produce hormones that affect the function of other organs, such as hormones to stimulate red blood cell production, help regulate blood pressure and control calcium metabolism.

The kidneys are powerful chemical factories that perform the following functions:

  • Remove waste products and drugs from the body

  • Release hormones that regulate blood pressure

  • Produce an active form of vitamin D that promotes strong, healthy bones

  • Control the production of red blood cells

  • Balance the body's fluids

The risk of kidney stones increases significantly with animal protein consumption.  

Individuals with chronic kidney disease find that the symptoms are exacerbated with animal protein. 

Animal protein is harmful for the kidneys and their function.  Conversely, plant-based diets are beneficial to kidney function.

Methodology

There is an overwhelming volume of research to substantiate the detrimental effects of animal consumption and the benefits of a plant-based diet.  We have included an abbreviated list of peer reviewed research articles as well as those by leading institutions.  We have excluded industry-funded research articles (or at least listed as having industry funding or if a primary author has an industry affiliation). Please let us know if you see a lapse or additional research we should include.
