Oily fish could stop blindness

2nd December 2010

Scientists say that a diet rich in oily fish could hold the key to preventing blindness among thousands of the elderly.

The study, published in the Ophthalmology journal suggested that the omega-3 group of fatty acids, found in oily fish such as salmon, mackerel and fresh tuna, may help protect against the most common form of sight loss among older people, it suggests. The scientists studied the diets of adults over the age of 65 found those who regularly ate seafood were far less likely to develop age-related macular degeneration.
