One out of every 10 people will develop painful kidney stones in their lifetime. In many cases a person’s diet can play a large role.

What foods help kidney stones? What foods can cause them?

Those are the two key questions answered by Dr. Neal Barnard as he joins “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll on The Exam Room LIVE.

Dr. Barnard also answers questions from viewers:

- Does caffeine cause kidney stones?

- Can eating too much spinach cause kidney stones?

- Is vegan cheese addictive?

- Do any plant-based foods raise cholesterol?

- How many Alzheimer's cases could be prevented with a healthier diet?

- Plus, many more!
