Fish to Prevent Age-Related Vision Loss in Women

1986

Professor William Christie from Harvard Medical School conducted a study which revealed that age-related vision impairment in women can be prevented by consuming seafood at least twice a week.

Fish and vegetables

The experiment lasted for 10 years and involved 38,000 women. On completing the experiment, 235 of them showed macular degeneration. All 10 years, the women had been writing reports about what and how much that had been eating. Those, who regularly received adequate amounts of fish and seafood, were 42% less likely to suffer from deterioration of vision.

Seafood – squid, prawns, sea fish, mussels, crabs, octopus and various algae – contain high amounts of omega-3 fatty acids which prevent the destruction of the retina.
