Comment of the Week
“I take Vitamin D (I live in Maine), Vitamin K2, Magnesium and Bilberry. I started taking Bilberry 4.5 years ago when the eye doctor told me that I was developing cataracts. On my last visit 6 months ago, the doctor said that the progression of my cataracts has slowed and I will not need surgery for at least 10 years. I also started wearing sunglasses when out on snow and water, something I neglected to do all my life until being told of the cataracts.“
