Eating fish can help protect the eyes pictures


Many scientists have recently found that eating fish as you age will protect against age-related macular degeneration (AMD) of the eyes, which is the main cause of vision loss in those over 60. About ? of those suffering from AMD are over 75. This condition occurs when the center of the retina, the macula, deteriorates, stealing vision required for driving and reading. In studies, those who ate diets high in Omega-3s had a 38% lower chance of degeneration, and those who ate fish two or more times a week showed a large drop in the risks of early and late degeneration. Another important and effective way to prevent this macular degeneration is by quitting smoking, as this is the number one risk factor. Omega-3s can be found in oily fish, such as salmon, trout, sardines, and tuna. Other foods include flax seeds and walnuts. These Omega-3s also help other areas of our lives, including lowering blood pressure, reducing menstrual pain, helping with depression, and assisting with osteoporosis. They even help with heart diseases and diabetes. Men do not suffer as often from AMD, and the effects of fish for men is not as clear as for women. However, eating fatty fish and Omega-3s will help keep you live longer and healthier.
