well, i complained twice to the 'feedback and suggestions' forum. it's almost impossible to find a definite address to reach youtube administration, and it doesn't look like they really read their foums much. i think the forums are just to attract users so they can expose them to more advertising.
my comments were simply trolled by some idiot. perhaps it would be best to inundate the man responsible for this bogus nonsense in the first place. mercola? :Kit n Stik;

I'm really proud of the IHD community.  Through these posts we've not only learned of this charlatan, we also have his phone number, website and the true reason for this video: to sell useless supplements.

This individual has no idea who he's dealing with.

are either of them medical professionals? If not, youtube could be held liable for that crap.

you cannot give medical advice without some sort of disclaimer like pharmaceutical companies due in their TV ads 'consult your doctor' etc etc..... jeez! i only made it through half and through like the rest of you 'where on earth did this woman work??' (kept praying she wasn't going to spill out Davita) :)

I think the worse part about those videos is that people are going to goggle the dangers of dialysis and those videos are going to pop up.  Not knowing a thing about kidney failure or dialysis and believe every word.  And I mean I have had kidney problems for years now but dialysis is still a pretty scary subject to me. I would have been scared to death if I would have watched those videos when I first got sick at 15.  They really shouldn't be able to give false information like that.

Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theres is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are they who mourn, for they will be comforted.
Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the land.
Blessed are they whohunger and thirst for righteousness, for theywill be satisfied.
Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.
Blessed are the clean of heart, for they will see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.

Pure ignorance. They know nothing about the " people"  on dialysis. I'll certainly post my comments.
