Dietary vitamin and carotenoid intake and risk of age-related cataract.

Consistent consumption of foods high in some vitamins and carotenoids, including lutein,zeaxanthin, beta-carotene, vitamin A, and C, may help fend off cataracts.

​This study investigated whether high ingestion of foods rich in vitamins and carotenoids is tied to lower risk of cataract. Researchers sifted through data extracted from 12 studies and 8 randomized control trials (RCTs). 

Researchers noticed that increased intake of foods packed with lutein, zeaxanthin, beta-carotene, vitamin A, and C significantly decreased the odds of having cataracts. The findings of this study reveal that avid consumption of certain dietary vitamins and carotenoids may confer individuals with significant protection against cataracts.
