  If you have some time left over, you may want to look at the level
of zinc recommended for macular degeneration.  The AREDS2 (very large)
study set the level at 80mg.  But a recent (very small) study says
they have found zinc as a constituent of drusen.  Now everyone is
backing off of the 80mg.  The power of a very small study.
