    Omega-3s from Fish Reduce Risk of Vision Loss

    Tufts researchers have further advanced the case for omega-3 fatty acids as a weapon against age-related macular degeneration (AMD), the leading cause of vision loss among older Americans. According to newly published research, a diet high in omega-3s-found in fatty fish such as salmon-can reduce the progression of AMD by about 25%. Scientists at Tufts' HNRCA Laboratory for Nutrition and Vision Research analyzed data on 2,924 participants in the Age-Related Eye Disease (AREDS) study, which concluded that antioxidant vitamins could reduce the risk of AMD. That study didn't directly involve omega-3s, but did collect information on participants' diets. So the Tufts team compared dietary consumption of foods high in omega-3s with the progression of AMD. Those in the highest one-fourth of intake of DHA (more than 64mg a day), one of two key omega-3s found in fish, were at 27% lower risk of AMD progression than those with the lowest DHA in their diets. The group consuming the most of the second key omega-3, EPA (more than 42.3mg a day), were at 26% reduced risk.-British Journal of Ophthalmology
