It’s like taking a vacation to Disney World because of “doctor’s orders.”
A study from Michigan State University declared that taking a ride on a “medium-intensity” roller coaster can aid the passing of a kidney stone with “minimal discomfort.”
Where in the world would you come up with a scenario like that?! Apparently scientists designed a fake kidney and kidney stones of three different sizes. Then they put the fake kidney in a backpack and took it on 20 roller coaster rides at Disney. (Who can I talk to to help volunteer with this study?) The coasters with speeds of 35 mph had a more successful outcome than Space Mountain, which had a top speed of 28.7 mph, passing the smallest stone in the experiment.
