Harvard Researchers Find Way to Protect Eyes

Harvard Researchers Find Way

to Protect Your Eyes

In a recent study with 38,000 subjects, Harvard researchers found that consuming fish regularly can lower your risk of developing age-related macular degeneration (AMD).

Researchers say that 9 million U.S. adults over the age of 40 have experienced some degree of AMD and 1.7 million have experienced serious loss of vision from it.

Study author William G. Christen, an associate professor with the division of preventive medicine in the department of medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School in Boston says:

“Fish oil, that is the omega-3 fatty acids found in fish, that have long been thought to be protective against cardiovascular disease may also be of significant benefit in the primary prevention of AMD.”

Women who ate one or more servings of fish every week had a 42 percent lower risk of AMD than those who consumed fish just once a month or less, the study found.

Most of the lower risk was linked to fish diets composed mainly of canned tuna and dark-meat fish, the researchers noted.

Christen and his associates concluded that their findings are “the strongest evidence to date” that omega-3 fatty acids protect against the onset of AMD.

With the already established cardiovascular benefits of eating fish and this new incredible 42% reduction of risk of AMD from eating fish, you might want to consider making fish once or more each week.

Have a healthy day,
