Could consumption of the ‘displacing foods of modern commerce,’ which equate to man-made, processed, nutrient-deficient and potentially toxic foods, be the cause of age-related macular degeneration (AMD)? Is it possible that enduring and orthodox belief systems, which hold that AMD is, first, “age-related,” second, a disease largely or primarily of genetic predisposition, and third, a degenerative disorder of which the prevalence presumably has always been high, may all be inchoate and erroneous assumptions?

In this Weston A. Price Foundation, Wise Traditions – 2018 Conference, ophthalmologist and Associate Clinical Professor Emeritus, formerly of the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, in Dallas, Texas, reviews the hypothesis and research proffered by he and his research team.

The fundamental basis of this research was recently published in the journal, Medical Hypotheses. The paper is available through Christmas Day, 2017, via Elsevier’s “Share Link,” currently available at (

Come see the compelling hypothesis and research – to find out how AMD may be prevented and treated, through ancestral dietary strategy.

    This is brilliant! Those of us who have been researching AMD prevention should ask ourselves, "Have any of the AMD Vitamins & Supplements companies and advocates backed up their hypotheses with even a fraction of the FACTS that Dr. Knobbe does here?" With all the products out there on the market for over 20 years now, I have to ask myself, “Why is AMD is STILL on a rapid rise?”
    All the AMD prevention focus has been on vitamins and supplements. Dr. Knobbe, in my opinion, proves that we’re addressing AMD (and other age-related diseases) “at the bottom of the cliff”, way too late. His hypothesis left me going through my pantry and refrigerator and re-thinking my approach to my family’s nutrition.
    I’ve read Dr. Knobbe’s book, “Ancestral Dietary Strategy to Prevent and Treat Macular Degeneration”. Having been in the vitreo-retina field for 29 years, I’ve seen all the hypotheses come and go, this one is going to stick folks. This will revolutionize age-related eye care. Thank you Chris Knobbe, MD!

    Dr. Christopher Knobbe may have saved my eyesight! I am from England where I was a family physician, and when I was diagnosed with AMD two years ago, I spent many hours researching the topic on the Internet. Having come to the conclusion that epidemiology was the best approach, I thankfully came across firstly, another one of Chris's videos, and then his book, Cure AMD. I have stuck to his protocol whenever possible (it's not easy when traveling out of the country). Two years later, my eyesight is still good, and the retinal specialist I have been seeing has advised me to "stay with what I've been doing."

    This entertaining and inspiring talk by Dr Knobbe summarizes his findings. I highly recommend it.
