Fish Found To Slow Down The Effects Of Eye Disease

June 9, 2009

Massachusetts (ChattahBox) – A new study has linked oily fish to stopping the progression of age-related macular degeneration disease, a condition that causes the gradual breakdown of vision.

According to the findings by Tufts University, the Omega-3 fatty acids found in fish have already been found to help prevent the disease when eaten a few times a week. But this is the first time it has been linked to an actual slow down of the disease itself.

The same study, which was conducted on 3,000 people, also showed that the use of vitamins like Vitamin C and zinc further aids in slowing the progression of AMD, of up to an incredible 50%.

“RNIB hopes that this will further highlight why looking after your eyes should be a key motivation in maintaining a healthy lifestyle,” an spokeswoman was quoted in the BBC as saying on the study.
