B vitamins

I was reading how B vitamins are important to avoid macular degeneration, which I have. Believe me, you want to avoid macular degeneration. Higher serum levels of vitamin B12 were strongly associated with decreased risk of having macular degeneration where high levels of homocysteine were associated with a significant increased risk of developing macular degeneration. Serum folate was less strongly correlated, but people who had deficiency at the beginning of a 10 year study had approximately twice the chance of having macular degeneration. So take heed.

Back in my college days, I admired Leo Buscalia. A favorite quote of his, “Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.”
