Second Suns is the unforgettable true story of two very different doctors with a common mission: to rid the world of preventable blindness. Dr. Geoffrey Tabin was the high-achieving “bad boy” of his class at Harvard Medical School. Dr. Sanduk Ruit grew up in a remote village in the Himalayas, where cataract blindness—easily curable in modern hospitals—amounts to an epidemic. Together, they pioneered a new surgical method, by which they have restored sight to over 100,000 people—all for about $20 per operation.
Master storyteller David Oliver Relin brings the doctors’ work to vivid life through poignant portraits of their patients, from old men who can once again walk treacherous mountain trails, to children who can finally see their mothers’ faces. The Himalayan Cataract Project is changing the world—one pair of eyes at a time.

Sharon Palmer was quoted in a piece in Today’s Dietitian on vegetarian teenagers, and ensuring they maintain a healthy, nutritious diet.
“Today’s kids are being raised by parents who are more aware of food connections, sustainability, and the environmental impact of the food choices we make,” says Sharon Palmer, RD, author of the upcoming book The Plant-Powered Diet, editor of the Environmental Nutrition newsletter, and contributing editor for Today’s Dietitian. “In my generation, those things weren’t talked about so much. Today’s young people are much more in-tune with the environment, and they realize that vegetarianism is a much more eco-friendly way to eat. They also have more access to information, and on websites like YouTube there are videos showing how animals are treated, which are difficult to watch, making them even more concerned about the humane treatment of animals.” [Today’s Dietitian]
