Eating Fruit & Veg Decreases Cataract Risk
According to a recent study (using data from the UK Biobank), explores the relationship between fruit and vegetable intake and the risk of cataract.
Researchers looked at the data of approximately 72,000 people who were free of cataract at baseline, as well as measuring the rate and type of fruit and vegetable intake.
The study concluded that having more fruits and vegetables, especially those rich in vitamins and carotenoids could lower the risk of age-related cataracts for example. legumes, tomatoes, apples, and pears, were associated with lower risk of cataract in this UK Biobank cohort.
