Does anyone have experience with the Outback Vision Protocol and can it be a scam?
Depends on your definition of a scam. If you think a lot of overpriced vitamins with a good deal of lies accompanying them is a scam then, yes it’s.
The site is a spammy mess which reeks of the fearmongering and difficult market.
When you scroll down way you actually get to some attempts at an explanation.
The advertisement quotes Professor Hugh Taylor of the University of Melbourne:
“The vision of the Aboriginal people is better than anybody else in the world.”
So I’ll add a second quotation from the Exact Same pro:
The reason Australian Aboriginal kids have the very best distance vision in the world is because it is a genetic trait. They are born with it, it is not a commodity of the lifestyle. Aboriginal communities have extremely low levels of macular degeneration. In fact Dr Fred Hollows who worked in many of these communities for several years stated he’d never seen macular degeneration at a full-blooded Aboriginal individual. It is another genetic trait.
As for the Warrigal greens, the Maori in New Zealand ate them frequently, but do not have exactly the identical eyesight as the Australian Aborigines. Kakadu plum is just native to the far north of Australia. That leaves out all the southern people. Quandong are not found in the north or the east of Australia. Pigweed (Purslane) is consumed around the world, usually grudgingly when there is little else. It’s not exclusive to Australia.
Macular degeneration is caused by a mixture of environment and genetics. You don’t have any control on what genes that you inherit but you may change the way you live. Macular degeneration is definitely not due to ‘the toxins’ like this man is saying.
If you would like to reduce the risk of macular degeneration through lifestyle factors there’s some great information out there based on appropriate research. Here Is an Excellent example: 11 Steps to Help Prevent Macular Degeneration
If you think that may have some particular vision problem then get some medical advice. Most things have much better outcomes when treated early.
