LADIES THIS ONE'S 4U:
Women who eat fish regularly may have a lower risk of developing age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Harvard researchers analyzed the diets of more than 38,000 women. Eye health was tracked over a decade, during which time more than 200 women developed AMD. They found women who consumed the greatest amount of one or both omega-3 fatty acids had nearly a 40% lower risk of developing AMD. Specifically, women who ate the most fish had a 42% lower risk of developing the eye condition.
The study was funded partly by the U.S. National Institutes of Health, and appears online in the "Archives of Ophthalmology."
