Plant-based Diets Reduce Risk of Cataracts

PositiveTips

A British study of over 27,670 participants investigating the relationship between diet and the incidence of cataracts has found a progressive decrease in cataract risk with decreasing animal product consumption.  High meat eaters defined as eating >100 grams per day (about 4 ounces) had the highest rates of cataracts compared with moderate and low meat eaters (4% lower), fish eaters (21% lower), vegetarians (30% lower) and total vegetarians (40% lower).

PositiveTip:  A wisely chosen plant-based dietary pattern, as originally designed by the Creator, appears to be best way of preventing disease--including cataracts.
