I don't know about a scientific explanation, but the kidney's have the important function of filtering waste products out of the blood. without a kidney, your blood becomes 'polluted' with all the waste products still in the blood. The kidneys are also involved in the production of red blood cells since they produce something which stimulates the production of the cells. Changes in the blood also lead to heart attacks in some people too.

What is the scientific explanation?
The kidneys are 'cleaning' the blood from pollutions and medical substances and so controlling the composition of urine. This failure is more than enough to get biohazardous. Without the kidneys, the whole organism would be damaged in such a way that it leads to death.
