About Bowie’s eyes.
Bowie had come to blows with a friend, George Underwood, over a girl they were both hoping to date.
Both were just 15 at the time and their friendship seemingly remained intact. The two performed together in various bands before Underwood turned from music to painting and graphics. But Bowie’s left eye remained seriously damaged.
An impulsive punch had accidentally scratched the eyeball, resulting in paralysis of the muscles that contract the iris. From that day, Bowie’s left pupil remained in a fixed open position (anisocoria).
Over time, Bowie apparently thanked his friend for his notorious eye injury, telling Underwood that it gave him “a kind of mystique”.

p75 neurotrophin receptor (p75NTR), involved in neuron growth and survival, helps to regulate metabolic processes that control body weigh (energy expenditure). Reducing the number of p75 NTR in fat cells prevented weight gain, obesity and metabolic syndrome. http://goo.gl/d265M4
