According to a just-released study, weightlifting may lead to glaucoma in men. That’s just great.
Obviously, this is only one study. And, according to the broadcast coverage of the findings, doctors want to take a much deeper dive into the findings, but still…
It makes me think of the old adage: "the only thing certain in life are death and taxes."
It also reminds me of Woody Allen’s character in the long-ago movie, Sleeper. When Allen wakes up after a prolonged Rip van Winkle-like sleep, he finds out that everything that was once considered bad is now good. So, a doctor offers him a cigarette and tells him it will do him good. Another suggests a thick red steak. Amazing how spot on Allen’s commentary has become.
As for me, I’ll keep lifting. But, I’ll also make sure to include a glaucoma test when I go for my annual eye check-up.
