Murunga to the Aid of Chronic Kidney Disease

My friend Asoka Jayawardena in New Jersey who often despatches vital information on health matters sent me an interesting brief on 'Moringa' (Murunga) with a request to write an article on the subject and, if possible, to get it published in a Sinhala newspaper, as the advantages of a Sinhala publication would be far more beneficial to the average Sri Lankan reader.
