Some vegetables:

Red meat and animal protein:

The medical periodicity noted that this food also contains a high percentage of uric acid and purines, noting that when these levels are too high, humans can develop kidney stones.

Industrial sweeteners:

Artificial sweeteners are used in many foods, but have many serious side effects on health they are associated with reduced kidney function, which can lead to the formation of kidney stones.
