High-fat diets not only increase your likelihood of a heart attack and cancer, they also increase your risk of going blind. A diet rich in saturated fat and cholesterol is 80 per cent more likely to develop your macular degeneration, a condition that destroys vital central vision. Include more fibre and take vitamins in moderation to cut your risks of macular degeneration and cataracts, the two major common causes of reduced vision and/or blindness in advancing age.
Unhealthy diets clog up both arteries inside your heart and also inside your eyes. This reduces blood flow and nourishment inside your eyes that can lead to blindness such as in macular degeneration.
In the interest of your better Eye Health, from the practice of:
