What food can stop cataracts?
« on: 27/09/2014 18:30:01 »
Dinah van der Werf  asked the Naked Scientists:
   
Are there  are any  food-stuffs, besides cranberries,  which will help to keep the lenses  of our eyes healthy and stop them from hardening ?    




What do you think?

I think the evidence is that a healthy diet rich in fruit and vegetables, avoiding smoking, not becoming diabetic, minimal UV exposure and not having to take steroids are consistent with the lowest avoidable cataract risk. (There's not much you can do about family history of course).
