Most cataracts are the result of ageing, other pathologies (diabetes), steroid or radiation exposure. Six month's liviing in International Space Station Freedom FUBAR Space Hole One Alpha (especially during solar storms) will cook your lenses to a pretty. Earth's atmosphere at sea level has a radiation shielding capacity of nearly a meter thickness of lead.

well, that doesn't really help me. I need to find the exact chromosome that is responsible.


i found this: http://www.pnas.org/cgi/content/abstract/101/40/14485 and http://www.pnas.org/cgi/content/full/101/40/14485 but i can't make heads or tails of it.


i need something like this: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/disease/chr1-4.html . That site has great info, however it doesn't tell me anything about cataracts.
