LONDON, England (Reuters) Smokers are up to four times more likely than non-smokers to develop a disease that is the leading cause of adult blindness, public health experts said in the British Medical Journal on Friday. Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is an irreversible and progressive illness that robs people of their sight. Although its causes are unknown, evidence from three large studies shows smokers have a higher risk of suffering from it. "Smokers are three to four times as likely to develop AMD," Richard Edwards, a public health expert at Manchester University, told Reuters. In Britain an estimated one in five cases of AMD are attributable to smoking. AMD caused by smoking has impaired the sight of about 54,000 people and blinded nearly 18,000.

Corn hybrids to fight blindness, birth defects
Story Tools DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) Plant scientists are working to develop corn fortified with beta carotene to help fight blindness, birth defects and malnutrition in developing nations. HEALTH LIBRARY Health Library YOUR E-MAIL ALERTS Follow the news that matters to you. Create your own alert to be notified on topics you're interested in. Or, visit Popular Alerts for suggestions. Manage alerts What is this? The research, under way at Iowa State University in Ames, also involves identifying known hybrids high in beta carotene. The substance is converted by the human body into vitamin A, which is essential for vision, cell division and growth. "Corn is a good way of delivering vitamin A because you to deliver it with fats and oils that help in its uptake," said Stephen Howell, director of the university's Plant Sciences Institute. The project has two components: Geneticist Steve Rodermel will lead a team in developing the new corn varieties and nutrition expert Wendy White will examine how vitamin A enrichment works. "The crucial question is how much the beta carotene needs to be increased in this corn kernel," White said in a statement. "To answer this question, we first have to understand how much of the beta carotene is absorbed by the body and converted into vitamin A to meet daily requirements."

Could bionic eye end blindness?
Jens completely lost his sight 18 years ago, but with the use of special glasses, he can find his way through rooms. By Dr. Sanjay Gupta and Kristi Petersen (CNN) Artificial vision for the blind was once the stuff of science fiction Lt. Geordi La Forge's visor on "Star Trek" or the bionic eye of "The Six Million Dollar Man." But now, a limited form of artificial vision is a reality one some say is one of the greatest triumphs in medical history. "We are now at a watershed," Joseph Lazzaro, author of "Adaptive Technologies for Learning and Work Environments," told CNN. "We are at the beginning of the end of blindness with this type of technology." Any scientific advance would have broad implications. According to statistics from Research to Prevent Blindness, Inc., 1.1 million people in the United States are legally blind, while worldwide 42 million people are without sight. The Dobelle Institute is among several institutions trying in essence to create a new cornea through technology. The cornea allows light into the interior of the eye.

Plan underway to squash preventable blindness disease
LONDON (Reuters) Pilot studies in Morocco and Tanzania have more than halved the number of cases of trachoma as doctors start a drive to eliminate the world's biggest cause of preventable blindness. The success of the International Trachoma Initiative (ITI), health experts said Monday, means the plan will be extended to other countries where the bacterial infection threatens millions of people with blindness, including patients in Ghana, Mali, Sudan and Vietnam.

Webcast aims to raise awareness of blindness as global problem
October 14, 1999 Web posted at: 10:41 a.m. EDT (1441 GMT) WORLD SIGHT DAY WEBCAST Live webcast of sight-saving surgeries and imformation about eye care. (CNN) In an effort to raise public awareness of worldwide efforts to prevent and reverse blindness, the Lions Clubs International's second annual World Sight Day conference is being Webcast live from Kenya. The Webcast on Thursday will include footage of cataract patients from villages in Kenya receiving sight-restoring surgeries, a special address from former-President Jimmy Carter, and information from the World Health Organization (WHO) on eye health. "One of the reasons we selected Kenya as the primary location for World Sight Day is that nearly 80 percent of the world's blind live in Asia and Africa," said Lions Clubs International President James Ervin.

As soon as I've secured employment in Portland (Oregon) and finished with all of the house purchasing and cross-continent moving craziness, I'll be porting the tool to . In the mean time, jpg/png processing and the handling of arbitrary file extensions may be disabled on occasion, and the maximum file size (currently at 100KB) may be adjusted in order to reduce server load.

  • Vischeck URL is still under development. We know that it will fail on many websites. For example, it won't work with sites that do an immediate redirect, use Macromedia Flash, or use certain javascript operations. Frames may also cause problems, but you can run each frame separately to get around this. Style sheets are crudely supported but beware that many variants will give incorrect results. We are currently working on a new version to fix many of these issues, but our day-jobs keep getting in the way or a firm release date. But maybe sometime in late 2004. Processing some pages takes some time- please be patient!
