Sadly, the death toll count from the attacks on September 11, 2001 may continue to increase, as more conditions and diseases from the debris and air that surrounded first responders at Ground Zero come to light.

Early research indicates that many first responders attending to the Twin Towers collapse in the state of New York, USA, may have developed early stages of kidney disease. The National Kidney Foundation is pushing further research into this issue in hopes of preventing failing kidneys and the need for life-saving, costly treatments, such as dialysis and organ transplants.

Hopefully, if the preliminary research proves to be accurate, then those first responders can be treated effectively with inexpensive, simple methods that will improve kidney function to that of a healthy individual again. Read more at the link below, and take the free self-assessment to see if you have symptoms of Albuminuria, “one of the earliest signs of kidney damage,” according to the site.
