This is an interesting angle to kidney function. How do oxidants/antiox idants benefit from the O2 free space? What is the history of a kidney..does a worm have a kidney? Does a frog have a kidney? Kidneys also have the valuable function of bLood pressure regulation via angiotensin, when renin is released from the kidney, to regulate the ever changing condition of blood pressure required which must require heaps of energy justification on a moment to moment basis...
Great to think my kidneys will never rust!
