Rajarata University Senior Lecturer in Medicine Dr. Channa Jayasumana said tests carried out by the California State University had revealed that higher grade students in the the North Central Province were at risk of contracting renal diseases in their early youth.
“We sent urine samples of students studying in grades 9, 10, 11 and 12 to the California State University and those tests have revealed that they are prone to contract kidney diseases at an early age,” he said.
Dr. Jayasumana said it was a serious issue facing the country where even students were at the risk of being exposed to this menace.
“Earlier we heard of people in their 30s and 40s catching this disease,” he said and added that they were having discussions with the health ministry as to what could be done to rectify this crisis situation.
“We are talking to health authorities about this issue. We have recommended that school children should be provided with clean water at schools in the North Central Province. Nearly 50 schools have been provided with water purifiers,” he said. (Ajith Siriwardana)
The Glyphosate paper has been clearly identified as a Hypothesis and is only a proposal. It does not report any actual research carried out by them. One of the three authors is the Kelaniya lady whose contribution is her ability to communicate with God Natha. Although CJ consistently calls himself Senior Lecturer, he is a probationary lecturer and his registration for a PhD degree at Kelaniya was cancelled last year for similarly claiming a qualification he did not have. As usual, details of the urine work have not been published - only a sensational report in the papers - and so cannot be checked. Before Arsenic/Cadmium, he claimed LTTE bioterrorism as the cause

Nalin Silva and this man with a few so-called researchers from the Kelaniya University earlier said that the cause for the CKDu was arsanic and cadmium in water, and they got that opinon from "God Natha". Now they say it is due glyphosate in water but they do not say from which God they got the opinion. Nalin Silva professes that western science is a blatant lie. But they rely on "he phosate theory" which has come through western science. They should be taken to tassk for mis-leading the public.

Nalin Silva and this senior lecturer of Rajarta University together with a few so-called researchers made a big sound two years back that they found the cause of CKDu, and it is aresnic and cadmium originating from pesticieds and chemical fertiliser dissolved in water. They further said that information they got from "God Natha". Now they say that the cause is glyphosate in weedicides.But they have this time not attributed that to "God Natha", but to a scientifiec stydy conducted in US. Nalin Silva professes that western science is a blatant lie but he and his pupils have accepted the stdy in US done based.on western science. These people should be taken to task for mis-leading the ublic.
