some of the info might suggest the man had cancer
since some chemodrugs cause failure of the kidneys, while trying to get rid of cancer with harsh chemistry. Consider that cancer rates go up every time there is a nuclear test on earth, compare, 1992, usa doomsday bomb russia and usa, at los almos alamagordo, new mexico, multiple warhead weapon at 5000 megatons and produced an earthquake 7.5 richter force. since then UTES in arizona, notice radiation is up on their reservatation, by as much as 900% over normal levels. 1998 E. India nuclear tests, 2006 n. korea nuclear tests. gives more information free, nothing to buy. Cancer and radiation may be the cause.
