The 2005 CARIG Annual Conference, if one were lyrical, could be termed a concerto in central and eccentric issues. The first two talks of the session placed a major emphasis on the importance to biological systems and human health of enzymatic and nonenzymatic cleavage of carotenoid molecules. The last two presentations
addressed the health of the very center of the visual axis of the human eye, the retinal fovea (macula). The presentation by Penny Nestel in the middle of the program centered on the problem of micronutrient malnutrition, but with elements of a strategy that most of the world’s societies might consider “eccentric” – agricultural interventions involving transgenic plants for biofortification. In addition, with its focus on visual
function on the one hand, and human carcinogenesis and the provision of foods in low-income societies on the other, the CARIG meeting was virtually dedicated to the concept: sight and life. It had a host of features relevant to the worldwide readership of the SIGHT AND LIFE Newsletter.
