Why designate a day dedicated to the kidneys?
Many people are currently not aware that their kidneys are damaged and they might find out too late. The need for dialysis or transplantation can be avoided if kidney diseases are detected early. Mental trauma and the need for excessive expenditure can be avoided if kidney problems are prevented / detected early and treated. Just becoming aware about the kidney, its functions, its problems, and about the causes of kidney disease might help many to prevent / treat kidney disease well in time.
