Eating fish protects your eyesight

There is good news for women suffering from age-related macular degeneration. A study to be published in the June issue of Archives of Ophthalmology analyzed the effect of regular fish consumption on the development of age-related macular degeneration (AMD).

Regular consumption of fish and omega-3 fatty acids found in fish is associated with a significantly reduced risk of developing age-related macular degeneration (AMD) in women.

This latest evidence of a protective link between fish oil and eye health mirrors past research that has found the same benefit. Though the above findings are the strongest evidence to date that omega-3 fatty acids protect against the onset of AMD, further research is needed to define the mechanism.
