With the help of a roller coaster and a 3D printed model of a full kidney, a team of medical researchers may have recently discovered why roller coasters cause people to pass kidney stones.
According to Gizmodo, the Journal of the American Osteopathic Association published a study this month by Michigan State University urologist David D. Wartinger and his team of researchers which presented evidence that riding moderate-intensity roller coasters can trigger the passage of small kidney stones.
Using a 3-D-printed kidney model, researchers found riding on the Big Thunder Mountain Railroad at Walt Disney World could help pass small kidney stones.
A team of researchers rode a roller coaster more times than they probably care to remember, just to figure out why roller coasters trigger the passage of small kidney stones. With the further help of a 3D-printed model of a kidney f...
