An estimated 3.5 million Americans suffer from low vision, but Saturday’s Low Vision Expo offers new information and technologies that can help people who have given up their favorite hobbies or activities.

A new study using San Antonio children shows that eating cereal with whole milk provides them with more nutrients and smaller waistlines as opposed to other breakfast foods.
The study used about 600 boys and girls from family incomes of less than $24,000 and followed them as they progressed from the fourth through the sixth grades. Every year it took 72 hours of a child’s diet to determine the effects of the different types of breakfast.
