An investigation by the World Health Organisation has revealed the

cause linked to kidney infections affecting many persons across several parts of the island.

In its investigation the WHO has pointed out that sedimentation of heavy metals such as cadmium & arsenic in kidneys had led to these complications.

The primary cause for these heavy metals to enter the human body has been identified as the consumption of contaminated food while the consumption of portable water has been ruled out.

The investigation which commenced in 2009 was collaboratively launched under the partnership of the Ministry of Health & the WHO in order to determine the cause of the chronic disease.

According to the ministry of health around 15% of the North Central provinces

population have been affected by the disease.

Professor Nalin De Silva who pioneered investigations regarding kidney infections in Sri Lanka’s North Central province speaking to our news team
