Dietary intake of omega-3 fatty acids and fish decreases the risk of early age-related macular degeneration (AMD) in women, according to a new study. Cardiovascular disease and AMD have been hypothesized to share similar mechanisms and risk factors. Dietary intake of fish, and specifically omega-3 fatty acids concentrated in fish (...

Fish and shellfish consumption decreases the risk of age-related macular degeneration (AMD), according to a new study. Fish oil is rich in omega-3 long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LCPUFA). Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), the major dietary and structural omega-3 LCPUFA of the retina, has the capacity to modulate processes implicated in AMD...

National Institutes of Health researchers looking at data from the Age-Related Eye Disease Study 2 (AREDS2) of more than 4,200 seniors found that those reporting the highest intake of omega-3 fatty acids had the lowest reported rating of AMD severity. Fish oil is rich in omega-3 long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LCPUFA). Docosahexaenoic...

A new epidemiologic study finds that diets high in omega-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) were associated with increased risk of age-related macular degeneration (AMD), and may mask the protective influences of consuming diets high in omega-3 PUFAs (fish oil). Previous epidemiological studies generally indicate a higher prevalence or...

Fish oil
Sep 17, 2009
Using data from the AREDS study, researchers find that consuming a diet rich in docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) - one of the active ingredients in fish oil - decreases the risk of progression of early age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Fish oil is rich in omega-3 long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LCPUFA). Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), the...

A new study involving mice finds that a diet with high levels of omega-3 fatty acids results in slower lesion progression, with improvement in some lesions. A diet high in omega-3 fatty acids has been found to protect against a variety of diseases including atherosclerosis and Alzheimer's disease. Retrospective studies have suggested that...

A laboratory study involving human retinal pigment epithelial (RPE) cells finds that the enzyme that converts docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), a major constituant of fish oil, to neuroprotectin D1 (NPD1), a neoprotective agent, is activated by oxidative stress and supplementing cells deficient in this enzyme was able to increase RPE cell survival....

Vegetables are good for maintaining eye health
May 21, 2009
Using data from the AREDS study, researchers find that a low glycemic index diet rich in vitamins C and E, zinc, docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), and lutein/zeaxanthin was associated with a lower risk of early and late age-related macular degeneration. Foods provide many nutrients that may interact to modify risk for...

Fish oil
May 20, 2009
A new study involving laboratory rats finds that both the retina and the lacrimal gland, whose role is to secrete tears onto the surface of the eye, absorbs omega-3 and omega-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids from the diet. Long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) are important components of fish oil, and it has been suggested that they are...

Olives
May 18, 2009
A new study finds that fish and olive oil are protective against AMD and trans-fat increases the risk of AMD. The evidence from published studies on the influence of dietary fat intake on the risk or the progression of AMD has been inconsistent, with some studies suggesting that higher intakes of vegetable fat and trans fat increase the risk of...
