An article regarding poor diet being assocaited with macular degeneration.
About as likely a truth as finding genuine BS in western NSW or Qld at present.
Any one seen my magnifying glasses.
I wonder if diet is a contributing cause, or that individuals with the higher risk dietary habits have some other parallel factors that are at play, irrespective of diet.
A sample of one individual of advanced years I know well has severe macular degeneration and is now legally considered vision impaired. The wonderful lady is neither overweight, nor a consumer of large quantities of red or processed meats. Veges and salads have been a high priority.
It’s difficult to have a high level of confidence in the results of one study alone. The work to date may well point to a better outcome for all. Although recent history is littered with breakthroughs claimed, where more thorough examination has been too readily overlooked.
I can see a whole new class of natural therapies and wonder remedies coming to the world of natural medicine on the basis of this one study. All with Antioxidant properties that target the chemistry of our eyes. No where did I leave those green tea eye drops?
Just kidding I hope.

You must know my aunt, who is 96, and this is her story, too. I, on the other hand, have not really been good about my diet, and at almost 70, have no such issues. Love my vegies and salads, but equally, hot chips are my downfall. And cream in coffee daily.
