Doctors treating the 17 years old boy with eyesight loss in the British city of Bristol said the boy was only alive on potato chips and crisps and his eyesight had almost completely disappeared.
The boy had eaten only french fries, pringles, double bread or half a sausage since he finished primary school. Most tests and medical studies have shown that the boy has severe vitamin deficiencies and his body is severely affected by a lack of proper diet.
The identity of the 17-year-old boy cannot be disclosed, but reports suggest that he first came to the doctor at the age of 14 with complaints of fatigue. At that time he was diagnosed with vitamin B12 deficiency and was asked to take special dietary supplements, but he did not follow this prescription nor did he abstain from eating fries and other things.
According to the medical journal Annals of Internal Medicine, he was taken to Bristol’s eye hospital three years later because he was losing his vision. Dr. Denise Eaton, who treated her at the hospital, said: ‘His food came from a local fish and chips shop daily. He also ate Pringles like crisps, etc. Sometimes he ate a piece of white bread or occasionally a piece of meat. In fact, he never ate fruits or vegetables.
