Could age-related macular degeneration (AMD) be another “disease of Western civilization,” produced by the consumption of processed food-laden diets? Ophthalmologist and associate clinical professor emeritus, Chris Knobbe, MD, formerly of the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, will present the hypothesis he has proffered for the cause of AMD, along with a sampling of his group’s supportive research collected from twenty-five nations. Dr. Knobbe will also review pertinent existing dietary research that supports the hypothesis as well as plausible biological mechanisms whereby toxic, nutrient-deficient, processed foods may produce this potentially blinding disease.
