Oily fish could stop blindness2nd December 2010
Scientists say that a diet rich in oily fish could hold the key to preventing blindness among thousands of the elderly.

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.
