Kidney Failure is the 8th leading cause of death in USA

But even the best of these years are filled with pain and trouble;soon they disappear, and we are gone."(Psalms 90:10)

From an article in The Hindu:
Aristolochic acid (AA), a plant compound used in herbal remedies since ancient times, is among the leading causes of kidney failure and upper urinary tract cancer (UUC).
This finding holds broad implications for global public health, as individuals treated with herbal preparations available worldwide that contain Aristolochia are at significant risk of developing chronic kidney disease or UUC, the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Science reports.
