The U.S. Congress awarded $24.1 million to N.I.H. for research on, The WORLDS #1 Life Threatening Disease, while Presidents want the same U.S. Congress to approve
$33,000,000,000 (BILLION) to South Africa to help the six million people in that country suffering from AIDS. Then the U.S Congress awards/rewards $787 Billion to the Wall Street or the global financial COMMUNITY for a job poorly done. We know now who is really calls the shots. At some time our FED & Congress should invest a little into it's own PEOPLE!
NOTE: $24,000,000 million is 2.4 % of just $1,000,000,000 Billion.
$33,000,000,000 (Billion), is a slap in the face to those who live in, The United States of America and suffer from PKD. $787 Billion dollars or a
$1,000,000,000,000 Trillion dollar grab from,
The International Financial Institutions is a statement.
1,000,000,000,000,000 Quadrillion Dollars in unsecured derivatives
the true scope of the financial problem we are facing.
Nationally, at any given time 108,000 people are in need of an organ transplant. 85,000 of those people are in need of a kidney. National annual kidney transplants performed are only 1,750. The list is growing too. 5% to 7% annual increase. 100 people start dialysis, after five (5) years ONLY 35 are still living. These people on dialysis, patiently, quietly, believe that the national law makers, the media, their medical community, understand the human impact from this genetic disease.
Nationally, 12 PEOPLE a day across America DIE waiting, on dialysis for an kidney from PKD. That is 84 NAMELESS PEOPLE every week disappearing. This past year more people have died from PKD in the U.S.A. waiting on dialysis than, ALL U.S. Military lives claimed for the first six years of the entire, "War on Terror". *6 to 1 ratio (+4,300) for the bean counters.
Someone in the United States of America is born with Polycystic Kidney Disease every 66.6 minutes. As this disease mutates into our society this value will change. 38% of the Persian cats have PKD. Save the cats ! The same DNA is affected/effected. I wonder if they are putting cats on dialysis every other day for four hours a day for five to six years before they qualify for a transplant also.
Autism effects 1 in 150 people. But new data is now coming out to suggest that Autism really effects 1 in 98. That is a 33% difference from previous claims.
They claim, Polycystic Kidney Disease effects 1 in 500, now. Since like previously mentioned that the real scope of this disease is not understood with is a good chance that a 33% disparity could be real. That would mean that 1 in 333 people could have PKD. This would really blow all the numbers presented here out of the water. If WE wait till PKD mutates to effect 1 in 150 people, WE will have FAILED as a society. Don't wait, care.
Once PKD, is in your family, It plans on staying for years!
All numbers Globally are based on that there is 15,000,000 (million) people with Polycystic Kidney Disease. Verses the 20,000,000 (million) people as advertised in some publications.
AIDS has effected, 33,000,000 (million) people Globally.
1,800,000 People are on dialysis at any given time. This treatment, is for five to six years (average term), up to 6 hours a day every other day (no exceptions). With 300 of these people a DAY globally dying. Dialysis patients are globally quietly, wait on their media, law makers, and medical community, to acknowledge this disease. Kidney disease in general is handled differently than other diseases that are not as debilitating.
Globally over 110,000 individuals die a year waiting. It has been this way for years, millions of people have died prematurely, unable to realize there potential, due to the long term affects of Polycystic Kidney Disease... Is this an orphan disease? Many think it is an epidemic or PANDEMIC.
Polycystic Kidney Disease, leaves a lot of orphans
