24,000 people in C.America have died as a result of a mystery illness related to the kidneys and we’re clueless as to why it’s happening, other than the fact that it strikes manual laborers more than any other group. There’s speculation that it’s due to a lack of hydration or exposure to pesticides and herbicides, or both. This is big, folks. If this kind of thing were happening in N.America, you can bet there would be outrage and a push to find the cause. Where is social media on this? Why aren’t doctors crowdsourcing solutions? Einztein is open to ideas from the community on how we can make a difference and help tackle this epidemic.
