A. Some studies have confirmed that some TVOC(total volatile organic compounds), including formaldehyde, methylbenzene, xylene, styrene, etc, will cause kidney problem. These TVOC are commonly seen in the newly decorated house. So you are not suggested to move into a new house until the air quality reaches the normal standard.

B. Some creatures will uptake heavy metal from the environment, such as mercury, chromium and cadmium. These heavy mental will accumulate in the more advanced creatures and then we humans will take them as foods. So the heavy mental will build up in human body, causing chronic intoxication. Cadmium poisoning will cause kidney damage and bone disease. In Japan, there are cases that some people who suffered from Minamata disease(mercury pollution) and Itai-itai disease(cadmium pollution) developed kidney failure.

C. If the water we drink are loaded with excessive minerals, such as calcium, manganese and magnesium, etc, the concentration of urine would be saturated. So the crystal and stone will form in urine tract or renal tubules, which will cause kidney failure at last.
