Study Finds Diets Richer In Fish And Shellfish Slow Age-Related Macular Degeneration

December 1, 2010: 11:49 AM EST

A study by John Hopkins University researchers finds that diets richer in fish and shellfish tend to slow the progression of age-related macular degeneration (AMD). AMD is a common vision problem that can lead to blindness if left untreated. Researchers attribute the AMD benefits to the high levels of omega 3 fatty acid found in fish. The study, which covered 2520 participants aged between 65 and 84, also found that as little as one large serving of fish per week can produce the beneficial effect.
