A study at the University of Iceland found that “over one in 10 people in their 60s and nearly one in four in their late 70s have an early form of age-related macular degeneration (AMD).” According to study author Dr. Fridbert Jonasson, other recent studies have found that antioxidants and a diet rich in “fatty fish” may lower the risk of AMD. He noted that early detection of AMD “means that we can start this treatment early, so hopefully reduce the risk of late AMD.” Click below for a Medline report.
