Vitamin D deficiency plays a roll in Myopia and Glaucoma

Once again the information we are given regarding Sunblock Creams come into question. Biased towards the cosmetic industry and scaring everyone thinking that sunlight causes Malignant Melanomas.

We need Vit. D from sunlight on our skins to be healthy !!

They need to be exposed same as the food industry was for the high carb low fat misinformation that we were fed for so many years.

I’m refering to the article “Associations of vitamin D deficiency and vitamin D receptor (Cdx-2, Fok I, Bsm I and Taq I) polymorphisms with the risk of primary open-angle glaucoma” by Lv et al. in the BMC Ophthalmology (2016) 16:116
DOI 10.1186/s12886-016-0289-y

The shortage of vit. D does play a significant causative roll in high myopia and primary open angle glaucoma.

“Vitamin D deficiency and the presence of the BsmI ‘B’ allele and the TaqI ‘t’ allele are relevant risk factors in the development of glaucoma.” as stated by Lv et al in the above mentioned article.

Unapproved stem cell treatments can blind patients

Stem cell treatment for various debilitating eye diseases seems to be the answer now days. On the surface it also seems to be a safe procedure. However, it is not. Certainly it is not a procedure that should be done as a “backyard” job. While stem cell treatments do have the promise of good results, many procedures are still experimental or in their infancy. It should only be done once it has been well researched at a reputable Eye Clinic.

Unfortunately patients with these debilitating eye conditions are usually at their wits end and panicking that they are soon going to be blind. This often makes them gullible and targets of the unscrupulous and they can end up with much poorer vision, and usually at best much poorer financially.

Reports of these unfortunate patients are all too common. We all realize that these patients are often at their wits end, but, common sense, caution and patience should and must prevail and remain the main guidance and pacemaker.

On March17, 2017 there was an article in the journal of the American Academy of Ophthalmology of 3 patients that were blinded by such a stem cell procedure, done in Florida.( Unapproved stem cell treatment blinds 3 patients – American Academy of Ophthalmology )
