Risk of Macular Degeneration Can Be Reduced with Fish, Study Finds

The result suggests that one can reduce one’s chances of developing AMD by eating just one serving of dark-meat fish per week.

A recent study focused on the diet of nearly 40,000 female health professionals over a 10-year period.  It found that those who ate fish—like canned tuna, salmon and sardines— once a week had about 40% lower risk of developing age-related macular degeneration (AMD) than those who did not.  The result suggests that one can reduce one’s chances of developing AMD by eating just one serving of dark-meat fish per week.

“Women who consumed the most EPA and DHA, the two omega-3 fats in fish, also had a 40% lower risk than those who consumed the least,” say boomer generation health experts Dian Griesel, Ph.D., and Tom Griesel, authors of the new books TurboCharged: Accelerate Your Fat Burning Metabolism, Get Lean Fast and Leave Diet and Exercise Rules in the Dust (April 2011, BSH) and The TurboCharged Mind (January 2012, BSH).  “While not proven, this study provides circumstantial evidence that omega-3 fatty acids help prevent macular degeneration.”

“There is a clinical trial presently underway (AREDS 2) which is specifically designed to examine the benefits of omega-3 fats and should conclusively answer the question of whether regular consumption can prevent AMD,” adds Tom.  “Importantly, there was no risk reduction found with consumption of ALA (alpha-linolenic acid), the omega-3 fat found in soy, canola and flax oils.  Regular consumption of fish has also been shown to lower the risk of heart disease, so it is definitely worth trying to eat at least two servings per week to obtain all the possible benefits.”
