Noticed (after I sent the last note) that a/the LAST study (Lutein
antioxidant supplementation 2004 study) also tied in macular pigment
increases with lutein intake _and_ the acuity increases. And just recently
(as far as my (this early am) searches) there is a LAST II study report in
Optometry (May 2007) by Richer that discusses macular pigment increases
(please see PubMed if interested). To me, this is most profound, take is to
take a supplement and to see (and measure (several techniques available,
also!!)) the result. And hopefully, have possible acuity increases in this
process. Will try to get the full Aleman's paper and Richer's paper.
Abstracts leave out too much.
So where are we with what you think the zinc level should be?
Re wired implants: There is something bothersome to see a neuron axon
(dendrite) draped across a silicon substrate tied to a terminal post.
Other stuff .... later.
