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.

                                      What parent would only feed their kids potato chips and french fries? What has happened to this world? No wonder kids are dying from vaping nowadays. It's not an epidemic of vaping. It's an epidemic of idiot parents. It's time to require parents to be licensed to have kids. If you don't know your ABC up through F, you should not be allowed to procreate.

                                            What a price to pay for eating junk food. He should have had stomach issues too. He'd be lucky to poop once a week - assuming he takes in little liquid, besides soda. Geez. Wonder if he was mentally delayed and who allowed him to eat that way.
