    Soya eases sore eyes

    SOYA lecithin, an ingredient found in margarine, has been found to
    cure and prevent dry eye syndrome.

    This condition affects up to four million people in the UK and is
    caused by ageing, contact lenses, central heating, air conditioning
    and staring at computer screens. Eyes become dry and sore and if not
    treated their surface layer could end up damaged.

    Soya lecithin helps stop the eyes' moisture from evaporating. In a
    clinical trial of 382 people, 89 per cent of sufferers reported an
    improvement.

    Hey, Tom....

    Can you ... by any chance ... do any better than "Madeleine Bailey --
    whoever she is -- says ....?"

    Like ... IF it was "found to cure and prevent" (which it wasn't), can
    we see some evidence of that?

    If not ... then please allow me to introduce you to Otis Brown....

    I don't believe it. Soya lecithin is a sludge left over from making
    tofu. It is used as a thickener and texturizer for manufactured fake
    foods.

    I know one person who uses only margarine (and not butter) and she
    suffers from the exact problem that you suggest is supposed to be
    cleared by margarine.

    TC-<<

    The 'treatment' .. using .. lecithin .. usually uses about three
    tablespoons of lecithin per day.
    How much margarine would one have to use to adhere to this ..
    protocol .. ?

    It is the **dose** that makes the difference ..

    Much like any 'drug' .. you don't give ENOUGH to **treat** then the ..
    protocol / treatment is not going to work.

    The lecithin is SPECIFICALLY depleted by iron oxidation and this
    lecithin MUST be replaced and this is accomplished by refilling ..
    much like being low on oil in your car ..

    When the oil light comes on .. putting a pint in isn't going to cut
    it .. one has to put in at least a quart of oil to .. top UP .. the
    lost / oxidized oil / lecithin.

    New soya-based dry eye treatment launched
    A spray treatment for dry eye conditions that uses soya lecithin to
    mimic the eye’sown lipid layer has been launched in Ireland.
    Clarymist, which is sprayed on toclosed rather than open eyes, was
    developed to treat dry eye syndrome, which a 2000 study1 suggested
    affects 10% of the population.
    Soya lecithin acts as an analogue to the eye’s lipid layer, which
    controls the rate of evaporation of tear fluid.The manufacturers say
    that most dry eye cases are caused by a deficient or disrupted lipid
    layer, which leads to abnormally fast evaporation of tears and
    subsequent irritation.
    Clarymist stabilises this lipid layer,thus sealing in the tears and
    alleviating the burning, scratching and grittiness associated with dry
    eye syndrome.By spraying Clarymist on to the closed eyelid, an even
    distribution of natural oils across the outer surface of the tear film
    is ensured through blinking action.One of the main reasons the lipid
    layer is disrupted is because of insufficient blinking, which
    typically occurs during long hours spent in front of a computeror
    television.Other contributing factors to dry eyes are dehydration due
    to central heating and air-conditioning,various prescription drugs and
    ailments,such as rheumatoid arthritis and diabetes. Contact lens
    wearers are also prone to dry eye conditions,which may worsen with
    ageing.Optometrist and senior lecturer in optometry at Aston
    University, UK, Dr Frank Eperjesi, said: “Clarymist is the first dry
    eye treatment of its kind and will come as a welcome relief to many
    sufferers.The extensive clinical research behind it alsoshows its
    values as a treatment for the causes rather than the symptoms of dry
    eyes.
    It is asignificant breakthrough in eye health.
    â€Clarymist’s RRP is €19.95 for 10ml.

    Systemic linoleic and gamma-linolenic acid therapy in dry eye syndrome
    with an inflammatory component.

    Cornea, 2003 Mar;22(2):97-101.

    Barabino S, Rolando M, Camicione P, Ravera G, Zanardi S, Giuffrida S,
    Calabria G.
    Department of Neurosciences, University of Genoa, via Siccardi 14,
    18030 Sanremo, Genoa, Italy.

    Abstract: Purpose. To evaluate the efficacy and anti-inflammatory
    activity of systemic linoleic (LA) and [gamma]-linolenic acid (GLA),
    which decrease chronic inflammation in rheumatoid arthritis, on the
    ocular surface of patients with keratoconjunctivitis sicca.

    Methods: In a randomized clinical trial, 26 patients with aqueous-
    deficient keratoconjunctivitis sicca were consecutively selected from
    patients presenting to Department of Neurosciences, Ophthalmology and
    Genetics, University of Genoa. The diagnosis was based on dry eye
    symptom survey score, Schirmer-1 test values, positive vital staining
    with lissamine green, and fluorescein break-up time (FBUT). All
    patients had ocular surface inflammation based on HLA-DR expression, a
    major histocompatibility class II antigen, on epithelial bulbar
    conjunctiva samples. The subjects were randomly divided into two
    groups of 13 patients each. The study group received tablets
    containing LA (28.5 mg) and GLA (15 mg) twice daily for 45 days and
    used tears; the control group received a tear substitute and a placebo
    tablet for 45 days.

    Results: Statistically significant changes in symptoms (p < 0.005),
    lissamine green staining (p < 0.005), and ocular surface inflammation
    (p < 0.05) occurred in the study group compared with controls. HLA-DR
    expression varied from 58.5 +/- 14.1% positive conjunctival cells to
    41.3 +/- 18.9% in the treated group and from 61.4 +/- 21.9% to 58.0
    +/- 13.3% in the controls. No statistically significant difference
    between groups was found for FBUT and the Schirmer-1 test.

    Conclusions: Therapy with LA and GLA and tear substitutes reduces
    ocular surface inflammation and improves dry eye symptoms. Long-term
    studies are needed to confirm the role of this new therapy for
    keratoconjunctivitis sicca.

    Now you noticed how I snipped the rest of your bullsht ..

    Don't you ..

    What are you doing in these lists ..?

    You know nothing of what you speak ..

    So .. what .. are you doing here .. ?

    Lecihtin contains .. LA .. and GLA is MADE .. **from** .. LA ..

    So since you didn't .. obviously .. KNOW the above .. then that
    means .. ? .. you are stupid ..

    I believe I told you that before .. and you keep on evidencing ...
    it ..

    Heh .. heh ..

    What a .. maroon ..

    http://www.pdrhealth.com/drug_info/nmdrugprofiles/nutsupdrugs/pho_0288.shtml

    Saturated fatty acids, such as palmitic and stearic, make up 19 to 24%
    of soya lecithin; the monounsaturated oleic acid contributes 9 to 11%;
    linoleic acid provides 56 to 60%; and alpha-linolenic acid makes up 6
    to 9%.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gamma-linolenic_acid

    gamma-Linolenic acid (GLA) is an omega-6 essential fatty acid found
    primarily in vegetable oils.
    The human body produces GLA from linoleic acid (LA).

    Unravelling like one of his threads, Rusty <>
    blathered:<<

    You see the thread .. ?

    Keep your **nutbar** antics somewhere .. else ..

    And by the looks of your posting history .. you have BEEN one for
    quite some .. time ..

    Lecithin .. soya lecithin .. **ingestion** AND/ or **topical**
    application .. of .. soya lecithin .. ALLEVIATES .. dry eye syndrome
    in .. people ..
    WITH .. **dry eye syndrome** ..

    YOU .. don't like those findings ..

    Now why would that .. be .. ?

    You must not have dry eye syndrome ..

    It is quite .. irritating ..

    Much like yourself .. to some .. I suppose ..

  12. How dare you ask that when you refuse to answer the question?

    What disease(s) do you have, other than iron-on-the-brain?

    Looking in the mirror again, I see.

    Rebutting your senseless ramblings.

    Laughing at your own face in the mirror, tom-tom?
