One of the reasons Mississippi has so many health problems is that it is very poor, and poor people can't afford healthy food or 'lifestyle' diets, like South Beach. While I'm not a great fan of low-carbing, that type of diet just got a major boost: high carbohydrate intake seems to be related to increased glaucoma risk. Not a surprise, since high-carb diets are a risk factor for diabetes which is a risk factor for glaucoma. D'oh, ya'll.
