Can drinking water with lemon prevent kidney stones? Also, I have been told not to drink city water. What is the best water to drink?

Hello, yes, as lemon contains vitamin C and vitamin C helps in cutting or preventing the formation of those kidney stones which are made up of calcium. You can drink boiled water (boil the drinking water for 5-7minutes, let it cool down and then drink).
