I did learn quite a bit about the condition that I didn't know. My mother had wet macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy in the 1990s. Not much available for treatment. I have been diagnosed with incipient dry macular degeneration and, having worked in Retina Medical Group for a brief time, I knew I had to take action. I have been getting annual eye exams due to my diabetes and that's how it was identified. I don't have any vision loss apart from a gigantic floater in my right eye that I've had for 10 years.
This book has valuable recommendations concerning diet and behavior that aren't difficult to implement. That said, I think the authors are Vegans based on the detailed recommendations on food acquisition, purity of essence, and preparation details. There is no discussion of frozen vegetables and their benefits and attributes. It's like the only thing that exists or matters is fresh stuff purchased in hippie natural food stores. The recipes appear to be way more involved than I will ever perform and I wonder if they don't have a cook working for them?
Anyway, it does present useful information about definitions, treatments, resources, and anecdotes about other MD participants. It just needs some updating and a slight change in direction to discuss real food and real people.
