The right diet is the key to managing many diseases and to improving general quality of life. For this condition, scientific research has found benefit in the following healthy eating tips.
|Feast on fish||People who eat fish more than once per week have half the risk of developing age-related macular degeneration compared with people who eat less fish.|
|Choose good fats||In a preliminary study, high intake of saturated fat and cholesterol was associated with an increased risk of developing macular degeneration, so look for lean meats and low-fat dairy, and cook with unsaturated fats, such as olive oil.|
