#BlackoutInfo What might be consequences of a national or even european #Blackout, lasting more than 72 hours in our electricity addicted society? How is our country prepared for? And how much our politicians engage for this catastrophic case?
#BlackoutInfo Within hours after a national #Blackout for 90% of all homes no more drinking water will flow out of the tap. Flushing the WC will work only one last time. Therefore risk of diseases is growing fast. No human can stand more than 3 days without water supply...
#BlackoutInfo As a follow of a national #Blackout production of food isn’t possible anymore. Distributing still available stockpiles is becoming difficult & very quick impossible. Automated warehouses can’t deliver anymore, because all is offline. Supermarkets run out of stocks.

Today is #WorldKidneyDay, so here is a thread about living on #dialysis & #OrganDonation. My name is Belinda Otas. I’m #African. I’m #Nigerian. I'm #Benin. I’m #British & I’m #Black. Beyond the nationalities or passports with my name, I also believe in our shared humanity.
I was 16, when I was diagnosed with End Stage Renal Failure (ESRF.) I had no idea what was happening to me because at the time, it made no sense. However, I remember the pain of that period like noonday. I lived on dialysis until i was 22. #dialysis #OrganDonation #renalhealth
It took over my teenage years. I don’t remember having much of a life as a teenager because dialysis was 3x a week & every session was 4hrs. Add the time it takes to recover from being exhausted by the process, my day was pretty much over. #dialysis #OrganDonation #renalhealth

This looks to be fun look at renal research around the world. I made my picks the way I make my picks at a horse track - I went by the titles. I expect as with #nephmadness as the results come in I'll learn why my picks were wrong and then more about the research that advances.
@RSNhope @ihatedialysis @KidneyPatients @DialysisAtHome @hdunews this is a new social media "game" that pits various renal research studies from around the world against each other in a World Cup style competition. This is a fun
