Can Diet Prevent Cataracts?

Can Diet Prevent Cataracts?

Cataracts are the leading cause of blindness and vision loss, so it's no surprise that cataract surgery is one of the most common surgeries performed today. There are several factors associated with the development of cataracts, including what type of diet we eat. Dr. Michael Greger's video clip points to a study that concluded, "Vegetarians and vegans had a significantly lower risk of cataracts than did meat eaters, with a progressive decrease in risk parallel with the amount of meat and other animal products in the diet." This is good news for those that consume a whole-food, nutrient-dense, Starch-Smart® Diet, and should also encourage others to make the transition as well. 

There are three other common causes of vision loss besides cataracts. Fortunately they can all be prevented with whole food plant based nutrition. The other common causes of visual loss are diabetes, glaucoma and macular degeneration. Information is now becoming widespread regarding the link between nutrition and the eye
