Obesity 'doubles sight-loss risk'

Green eye

Obese people have double the risk of losing their sight because their weight increases their chance of developing certain conditions, a report has said.
The Royal National Institute of the Blind said the obese risk cataracts and age-related macular degeneration - the most common cause of sight loss.
It warned that millions of obese adults and children in the UK are also at risk from other eye conditions. The RNIB said people did not do enough to look after their eyes. Latest government estimates predict that 13m adults and children could be obese by 2010, if no action is taken. Increased risk
The RNIB says being obese is linked to a risk of developing four main conditions linked to sight loss.
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the UK's leading cause of sight loss - with around 500,000 people affected.
People with a body mass index of over 30, who are classed as obese, have double the risk of the most common form of the condition - dry AMD.
Obesity has also been found to increase the rate of progression of wet AMD, which can lead to severe sight loss and blindness in as little as three months.
People who have a genetic predisposition to AMD must be particularly careful about their weight as their risk of the condition increases from a four-fold risk if they are a normal weight to an 11-fold risk if they are obese.Those who are obese also have double the risk of cataracts, which are linked to one in four cases of sight loss in the over-75s. Obesity also significantly increases the risk of type 2 diabetes, which is linked to diabetic retinopathy.
The risk of sight loss through diabetes is also particularly high in people from Asian, African and African/Caribbean backgrounds, who are four to five times more likely to develop diabetes.
There is also a link between being severely overweight and glaucoma, caused by pressure within the eye. 'Treatment possible' Barbara McLaughlan, an eye health consultant who wrote the RNIB report, said: "With a staggering one in five adults and children in the UK now considered to be obese, RNIB believes it is vital that people are made aware of the risks to their sight.
"Sight is the sense we most fear losing, but most people don't do nearly enough to look after their eyes.
"To safeguard sight we recommend people maintain a healthy weight, eat lots of fresh fruit and vegetables, take exercise to improve general health, don't smoke and most importantly have regular eye tests.
"Many thousands of people lose their sight each year through conditions that could have been treated if picked up early enough through an eye test."

My 2nd Home

Had it not been truly my 2nd home, it would not have been possible for me to live for so many years in this peaceful, brotherly, friendly, caring, and lovely Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.  My hearty and heartfelt greetings to everyone on the prestigious National Day of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Manzoor Sheikh Dammam

As-salam-o-alaikum,
This second home of ours is almost as if I am living here since birth. Now almost 10 years down the road it seems that there is no place better than Saudi. I don't want to go back home ever. A visit to holy cities of Makkah and Madinah is the biggest charm. We living out here do not realize this but we are the most fortunate people to have this luxury. Ask those who visit these cities once a year or lifetime or never ever. The security forces of this country must be given credit to have so much peace around here. Comparing to the corruption and lawless situation in our country its amazing to see these people work with so much honesty and efficiently. The government is the best by making this happen and its biggest achievement is to organize the biggest event of all times I.e Hajj. Hats off to them along with all due credit for the efforts they put into to make sure the residence of KSA get what they needs. Even a small village in Saudi will have all the basic necessities available and the things they do to go out of their way to make life easier for the citizens as well as expatriates. We expatriates complain a lot about many things but on the whole its nothings but pinch of salt in a river. Our families back home are enjoying good life due to this country as there is lot of barkat in the money that we earn. On the whole we must play our part to abide by the rules of this country and stay peaceful with doing more than we could to play our part in making this beautiful country progress. This is the  birth place of Islam and its our duty to see to it that this country stays strong and peaceful. I am sure when time comes we all will be united to defend this country and sacrifice whatever we have. May Allah make us united. Live with peace, love and harmony. Regards, Faisal - Riyadh
 
Dear CP:
I want to share my great feelings on the occasion of the national day of this great country, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, that is my second home. This country has given so much to me and millions of people on this planet. Not only the people, the economics of several countries have improved and have major contribution from the resources of this country. This country has changed the life style of the people and the societies. I love this country from the depth of my heart and I will keep on loving. It is very secure and safe and have provided a very healthy and prosperous life to me and my family. My family has great affection and love for this great country. They do not want to leave this great place at any cost. May Almighty Allah always keep this place safe, secure and prosperous. May Allah grant the soul of the deceased great rulers of this country heavenly peace in Jannat Al-Firdous May Allah keep the existing and future rulers of this country on the right path (Aameen). Best Regards,
Dr. Mohammad Ashraf Ali, Dhahran

Upon its completion, it will offer complete audio recording facilities that are only available in commercially established radio stations. It will have digital editing and mixing facilities of no match. This requires RCP Studio-1 to be off line for few weeks. InshaAllah Gup Shup will return with improved sound quality and programming.

 Saudi National Day
Assalam-o-alikum
Well! Well!! The schools have opened and already two weeks have passed by.  Isnít it nice meeting friends at school after the long summer break and seeing how each have changed in just two months time.
23rd September is the Saudi National Day. The significance of this day for the Saudi nation is quite the same as of our Independence Day. The Saudi National Day celebrates one of the most important events of the 20th century, the founding of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
For us Pakistanis, residing in the Kingdom of Saudi, this country is like a second home for us- a home in which we have been welcomed by its Saudi owners.  It is not easy to share your home with outsider. It requires a big heart to hospitably welcome others on your land.  Pakistanis, like people hailing from many other countries, have come over to the Kingdom to provide them with our services to speed up the pace of the progress of this nation. We in return enjoy the facilities and richness of this country.  Through the salaries that are earned by the Pakistanis here and sent back to our country, Pakistan is able to earn foreign exchange that helps country meet its financial trade deficits.
There is another significance of the county too. Saudi Arabia is like a religious emblem for the whole Muslim Umma. The two holiest places of Muslims, Bait-Ullah and Holy Mosque of Prophet are situated in KSA.  Besides, in times of need Saudi Arabia has always been in the forefront to help the whole Muslim world.
Pakistan shares especially friendly ties with Saudi Arabia. In rough times, may it be due to wars, or natural calamities, Saudi Arabia has not only provided emotional and political support but also financial assistance to us.
The National Day of Saudi provides us, yet another chance to show, the warm and brotherly feeling Pakistani have for the Saudi Nation. We, Pakistani, are like ambassadors of our country here. We shall fully participate in the celebrations of the Saudi National Day on behalf of our country. We shall rejoice with them in their happiness and join them in their vow to work for the progress of the country in special and Muslim world in general.
Happy Saudi National Day!

Till next time, Allah Hafiz
