A Boy Ate Only Chips And French Fries For 10 Years. This Is What Happened To His Eyes.

  • Published: 10 September 2019
  • This case is based on publication in literature by Harrison R, Warburton V, Lux A, Atan D. Ann Intern Med. 2019 Sep 3. Link below. Non-clinical elements (e.g. initials, story details, etc) are adapted. Peer Review: Dr. Nikhil Parelkar.

    I originally had another case for video of a vitamin b12 deficiency I saw as a student about a girl on an overly strict diet. I didn't release it because the details were more difficult than I would like for a video. The clinical principles and science of that case and this one are the same.

                              When I’m craving beef and tired I know I’m low on b12. It’s just the way my body and mind connect. I know because it’s happened to me. I also know when I’m low on electrolytes because I get nautious and vomit and I’m at risk for seizure activity. Time to increase Gatorade to prevent seizures.

                                                  Vitamin B12 is one of the reasons suggested for why herbivores occasionally snack on animals (calcium and just plain calories are other proposed reasons).

Good on paper, in a lab, in a room of academics, elitists sniffing each other's butt like dogs, clapping hands. We dont need these drug dealers most of our lives.
