Healthy kidneys are essential to a healthy life. They are vital organs necessary for survival.

Most people have two kidneys, one on either side of the spine under the lower ribs. They are reddish brown in colour and shaped like beans. Each kidney is about the size of a clenched fist. Although kidneys are relatively small, when they are healthy, they process 100% of the body's blood supply about every 5 minutes. Kidneys are really important and we shouldn't take them for granted. Learn why you should be kind to your kidneys.
