Central America, low blood Poison/"Vitamin A" without any health issues!

Vitamin A deficiency in Latin America and the Caribbean: an overview.

Vitamin A deficiency (VAD) has been known to exist in Latin America and the Caribbean since the mid-1960s; however, except for pioneering work by the Institute of Nutrition of Central America and Panama/Pan American Health Organization on sugar fortification in Central America, there was little interest in controlling it because of the low frequency of clinical findings.

This paper was written in 1998.  They're saying that "Vitamin A Deficiency" has been known to exist there since the 1960s.  Don't you think if there were actual problems truly created by a "Vitamin A deficiency"--that is, if it were a TRUE ISSUE--that the problems would have shown up in the people within a 35-YEAR timespan?

Here's your population-level research that shows that it's not actually an essential vitamin at all, folks.  BOOM.
