Questions still remain concerning the causal drivers of CKDu.
Establishing exact causality in epidemiology often takes decades. Chronic diseases in particular are frequently multi-causal, requiring more time to fully untangle. They are rarely understood completely.

Nevertheless, following the precautionary principle, La Isla Network advocates for proactive interventions in the workplace as well as government policies that must be instituted to protect at-risk populations.
