Diet: Vitamin C Associated with Lower Cataract Risk.

Diet: Vitamin C Associated with Lower Cataract Risk.

An analysis of data from twenty published studies indicates that increased vitamin C intake is associated with a reduced risk for developing nuclear cataracts and posterior subcapsular cataracts. Study participants with the highest intake levels were nearly 20% less likely to develop cataracts compared with those who consumed the least vitamin C. The authors of the analysis note advise that “[vitamin] C intake should be advocated for the primary prevention of cataract.”
