    10 Habits That Are Killing Your Kidney (Don’t Take No. 3 for Granted)

    Our kidneys are among the most important organs in our body. Kidneys are responsible for detoxifying the blood. These two bean-shaped organs filter out waste material through urine. Moreover, the kidneys eliminate excess water from the body and retain it when needed. They also regulate the levels of phosphate, calcium, and other minerals in the body.

Well, there’s reason behind this seemingly tawdry trend in film: certain types of movies are guaranteed to make a profit, as their goal is to entertain and more importantly show you something they know you will like, mostly because you already liked it before and are likely to go see the next movie that resembles it. You go to…
