So today is a holiday with which I was never allowed to participate. Oh, sure, we bought candy for all the little tykes that would bang on our door, but I wasn’t permitted to travel the streets. It wasn’t our holiday.
From the second the first dialyzer was invented by Abel, Rowntree, and Turner 115 years ago, it should have been clear that dialysis- which cleans the blood of most of the toxins that accumulate when the subject has kidney failure, was, at best, incomplete.
As a child of the 50s and 60s, I was surrounded by folks who experimented with all sorts of “mind-enhancing” drugs. Me? I was content to keep my experiments contained within my chem lab. (Nowadays, my fraternity brothers and friends would term me the “designated driver”.)
I am sure you are all wondering what’s been happening about the dialysis patient organizations- and, now, it seems that some dialysis clinics- are paying the health insurance premiums for dialysis patients. (I first discussed this issue here). There is a new complainant- it’s not just private insurance companies now.
