While we had planned to begin our vitamin A deficient diet at the end of last week, we have unfortunately run into a snag. Ian G., our fourth test subject, has been forced by personal circumstances to drop out of the NIR vision pilot study. With an extra set of equipment and only three data points, one of whom is a control (Gabriel) who will be taking plain old vitamin A alongside our VAD diet, we felt it would be best to push off our experiment start date another month or so while we find a replacement and get him/her into shape.
We are currently interviewing a handful of candidates who have expressed interest in contributing to this project since its inception, and hope to have a name and basic biography to share with you by the end of the week. Again, please forgive us for the further delay; we’re moving things along as quickly as possible.
