Yesterday, I was thinking about myopia (since I am personally affected by it). It is often explained away as being part of a genetic inheritance, but is there more to the story? Is diet (in or out of the womb) a contributing factor to its occurrence? Wikipedia mentions the lack of sunlight as a possible contributing factor.
Chinese people appear to be severely affected by myopia. (Is the incidence high in other East Asian countries as well.)
