Mediterranean Diet and Coffee May Protect from Age-Related Eye Disease
A recent research finds that eating a Mediterranean diet and drinking coffee may lower the risk of developing age-related eye disease (age-related macular degeneration, or AMD), one of the leading causes of blindness.
In the study, 883 people aged 55 and older participated in the study. The researchers assessed their diets with the help of questionnaires. 449 people had early stage of AMD and 434 didn’t have eye disease. Following Mediterranean diet was associated with a 35% lower risk of AMD.
Also, the researchers found that people who consumed high level of caffeine seemed to have a lower risk of AMD. Among those who consumed high levels of caffeine (around 78mg of coffee per day, or one shot of espresso), 54% did not have AMD and 45% had the disease.
