Take Fish Oil to Cut The Risk Of Age-Related Macular Degeneration

Researchers reported in the Archives of Ophthalmology that fish oil can help us from losing our vision.

In this study, scientists reviewed results of the Blue Mountain’s Eye Study which tracked 3,654 people. Participants completed a food frequency questionnaire and were re-examined after five years.

Researchers found that those who ate three or more portions of fish per week experienced a 70% reduction in the risk of developing Age-Related Macular Degeneration. Those who ate fish once a week had a 40% reduction in risk.

So…do I smell fish cooking in the kitchen?
