A recent study has highlighted that women who eat healthy foods, high in vitamins and minerals could have a lesser risk of developing the most common kind of cataract.
The research was conducted at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, where 1,808 women, aged 55 to 86, participated in the the Carotenoids in Age-Related Eye Disease study.
Daily food and nutrition intake reports and intake were scored in terms of the value of the food consumed for the health of the individual eating the food .
Foods which had high healthy diet scores were from the recommended levels for fruits, vegetables, grains, meat, fish, eggs, beans, milk, meat and far below the recommended levels for saturated fat, fat , sodium and cholesterol .
The study said that healthy diets are more strongly related to the lesser occurrence of nuclear cataracts than any other modifiable risk factor or protective factor studied in this sample of women."
