YIKES. Well, now I’m just thinking back to when my mother told me to eat my veggies and I’m certainly glad I listened to her.
A teen over in the UK ate literally nothing but white bread, salted pork, chips, and crisps. He started feeling head pains and blurry vision at the age of 14. At 16, they really were making him dizzy and nauseous 24/7. But nothing changed!
At the age of 17, our bad eating friend has gone pretty much blind. The diet sent his eyesight into nothing.
Doctors found the patient had vitamin B12 deficiency, low copper and selenium levels, a high zinc level, reduced vitamin D level and bone mineral density.
If caught early, the condition, nutritional optic neuropathy, is reversible; however, if it’s left untreated it could lead to permanent damage to the opic nerve and blindness.
That’s exactly what happened.
Eat your veggies.
