Decrease Your Risk for Macular Degeneration

According to a newly published study, the risk of macular degeneration is lowered through the consumption of fish and shellfish.  Research at the Wilmer Eye Institute, Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, Maryland  has shown that omega-3 fatty acids can affect processes associated with macular degeneration and the development of macular degeneration, reducing the risks associated with this eye disease.

In the current study investigators showed consumption of fish and shellfish provided some protection against advanced macular degeneration.

This research provides support for other studies showing the value of fish and omega-3 fatty acids in helping prevent macular degeneration.
