We have been exposed to ‘mercury’ in our sugar, aflatoxin in our maize, chemicals in bananas and vegetables, “mafuta ya transformer” in our chips kuku and God knows what else… no wonder we have lifestyle diseases breaking out everywhere affecting the young population.
The kidneys filter out impurities in our bodies and their functionality is affected by what we ingest. Kidneys control many critical functions in our bodies e.g;
• Production of red blood cells
• Controlling blood pressure
• Maintaining chemical balance in the body
When kidneys are not working properly, waste products and fluid can build up to dangerous levels and cause serious health problems. The worst cases may require critical intervention in form of dialysis or transplant.
So…, jokes aside, check your kidney function regularly, it could literally save your life.
