Are You Kidney Me?


The March issue of Fitness magazine brought to my attention the staggering statistic that more than 26 million Americans, or one in nine adults, suffer from chronic kidney disease -- which often goes undetected until it’s fatal. When you combine that statistic with the current estimate that nearly 50 million Americans don't have health insurance, it’s truly a godsend that on March 11 –- otherwise known as World Kidney Day -- the National Kidney Foundation is sponsoring FREE screenings all over the country.

If you or someone you know might benefit from this life-saving test, please go to www.keeponline.org to find a testing site in your area. You can also click here to take the “Kidney Quiz” and captivate your compadres with your kick-ass kidney comprehension.
