Many people consider poor vision an inevitable fact of aging. The most common cause of diminishing visual acuity is the condition called cataracts. A cataract is a clouding of the lens in the eye. Most results of Internet searches for information on cataracts offer only surgery under treatment options. According to Jonathan Wright, M.D., there is, however, a natural treatment with no negative side effects. If you or a loved one are dealing with cataracts, you may want to review “Don’t allow Congress to let you go blind!: Reverse cataracts with a simple-and safe-eye drop formula” and related research with your ophthalmologist. This article appeared in the July, 2008, issue of Dr. Jonathan V. Wright’s Nutrition & Healing newsletter.

Have you been reading the articles about the possible danger of using a cell phone? The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), first reports, “The available scientific evidence does not show that any health problems are associated with using wireless phones.” Then adds, “There is no proof, however, that wireless phones are absolutely safe.” When you are educating yourself on this subject, you might want to keep in mind that many experts feel any studies tracking the impact of using cell phone handsets need to cover a minimum of ten years, though most are far shorter studies. If you are concerned about any possible risk, a simple solution is to use a headset.
