Health Alert

Comedian and America’s Got Talent host Nick Cannon is now on the mend after the star was treated for mild kidney failure last week. Blacks are at higher risk for kidney disease, according to the National Kidney Foundation, and research has shown that younger Blacks have an increased risk for death while receiving treatment for the disease than whites.
