that isnt true at all and by saying that, you are opposing science and medicine. there isnt a proven link, just a guess. if you think there is no doubt that the poor diet caused blindness then you are anti-science and medicine.

He is blind from malnutrition. That word is IN the conditions name.

o nutritional optic neuropathy ó a condition caused by a lack of nutrients, which impairs the normal functioning of nerve fibers and leads to optic nerve dysfunction.

nah, he isnt. but i guess i wasnt totally accurate when it comes to the anti-medicine. i suppose medicine does take its best guess and attempts to treat (often wrongly). but science wouldnt make that claim and pretend that its 100% definitive (which they didnt actually do).

see:

"Researchers at The University of Bristol believe the teen’s junk food diet led to nutritional optic neuropathy — a condition caused by a lack of nutrients, which impairs the normal functioning of nerve fibers and leads to optic nerve dysfunction."

"believe" is qualifying language and is put there because they dont actually know for sure.

A person who consumes almost nothing with nutritional value gets nutritional optic neuropathy.

Zebras and horses. It's pretty safe to assume the one caused the other (horse). 100%? No. He could have some sort of metabolism problems that is filtering out what little nutrition he gets, sure (zebra).

Do you own stocks in Pringles or something?

Your kids are not your buddy, your friend, or your pal. They are your kids, act like it. I agree. You may need to force them.

Sometimes it can be hard. I was really underweight as a kid (like 3rd percentile for my height and weight at times), so forcing me to eat anything was a bit difficult. My diet was awful, but not as bad as this kidís diet, thankfully. I think I ate green beans, carrots, had salads, and one of my main snacks was non-sugary cheerios, so I was getting vitamins that way.

He probably needed some therapy to get further in depth as to why he had the diet he had (I read it as he had some issue with textures and was avoiding many foods). If I didnít like a food, a lot of times I would gag and it would be hard for me to get it down. If some sort of reaction is happening, he will need therapy to eat over it, not just a parent forcing him to sit there and eat the food in front of him.

Even if it was a sensory issue there are other options. My son went through a phase where he didnt eat enough, he was really skinny but doctors werent concerned about his calories. They were concerned about the dark bruise like circles under his eyes and the fact that he was obviously anemic. So he drank nutritional shakes and took vitamins. after a year or 2 he ate normally and all is well. If this kid at 10 or 12 or 14 was sick from a nutritional deficit he should have been given vitamins. if he refused to take them daily, most vitamins can be administered in a shot. Vitamin b shot vitamin a etc. which his doctor was negligent and his parents were negligent in not providing.

The boys parents should have been watchng his diet as well as making sure he was taking vitamin supplements that had been prescribed by the family doctor, and his parents should have made sure he saw the family doctor reguarly to check on his health.
