Diet to Halt and Reverse Heart-Disease/Atherosclerosis Info

About 9 years ago, I did a deep dive into the diet/health medical research.  I was more concerned about heart disease and my wife Iris was more concerned about getting cancer.  The research clearly showed that a low-fat, whole-food plant-based diet addressed both issues.  We made the switch 9 years ago.  I have continued to read the peer reviewed research.

Will cholesterol-lowering drugs prevent glaucoma progression?

I received this question today:
Hi David,
I would like to ask a question about a new medication that my glaucoma specialist has recommended to my GP. The glaucoma specialist has recommended that I start taking Lipitor, the old cholesterol drug. My glaucoma specialist said there is a 30% to 40% chance Lipitor will prevent further progression of my glaucoma.Is it a common thing for people to take Lipitor, as I'm not keen at all to start taking a statin if i don't have to. And i don't know any other people with elevated eye pressure or glaucoma.

For background, I'm also taking Travatan eye drops in the evening.  I have have no damage yet from slightly elevated pressure in my eyes and I'm a 44yr old insulin-dependant diabetic. My cholesterol is in the acceptable range also.  Id rather go with more natural ways, if possible. Would you have any opinion?

Diet, Eye Pressure and Glaucoma

Might a healthier Diet aid in lowering glaucoma risk? FitEyes is exploring the effects of Diet on Intraocular Pressure and Glaucoma in this section.

Glaucoma cure/prevention

Submitted by profbush on Tue, 06/22/2010 - 9:34pm

In the Rome University Eye Clinic in 1966 the usual number of primary open angle glaucoma cases existed who were unresponsive to any combination of medical therapies. In desperation, Virno et al., found an old paper describing a 1mm reduction with 1 gram of ascorbic acid (vitamin C.) Virno must have read the work of Dr. Fred Klenner MD FCCP who cured 59 cases of polio with injected sodium ascorbate for he then administered 7,500mgs 4 times/day (30 grams) orally, and was overjoyed to find the victims' pressures down and saving sight.
