The Antioxidant Rumour

Rumour: Antioxidants have the potential to protect against age-related macular degeneration.

Truth: This is true.

Age-related macular degeneration can lead to irreversible blindness and has been associated with diabetes, alcohol consumption, and smoking. Since smoking is a leading environmental factor that contributes to age-related macular deterioration, a study examined whether there was an association between antioxidants and age-related macular deterioration.

A Korean study published in the Nutrition Journal conducted a nutritional survey from 2010-2012, followed with an age-related ophthalmologist test after the study. Study results indicate that antioxidant consumption only was effective among smokers in protecting against age-related macular degeneration. For more about antioxidants and age-related macular degeneration, click here.
