I didn’t expect such human interactions in the wilderness, nor did I want it. In this busy life, I have always entered the sanctity of God’s creation in awe and with nothing on my lips but silent praise.

Researchers from King’s College London, the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, and several other institutions, observed 371 Europeans with nearsightedness and 2,797 without the condition.
