Published yesterday on Voxxi, an interview with Ed Kashi highlights the impact and urgency of Ed’s “Island of Widows” IndieVoic.es campaign, focusing on Nicaragua’s epidemic of Chronic Kidney Disease of unknown origin. Discussing the increasing momentum of the disease, Ed is quoted “What’s really a concern now is that the disease has accelerated whereas it took…20 or more years [for older cane workers] to contract, their sons or grandsons are now contracting it as quickly after a year or two.”

Ed is further quoted, “There’s clearly some accelerant in the environment. I’m not a scientist, but one of the things I really appreciate about what La Isla is doing is they’re working with epidemiologists and scientists to try to figure out what’s the cause; to try to come up with a solution.”
