An Orange A Day …

I heard about this on the news this morning and thought all of the authors out there might be interested. Macular degeneration can be slowed down, and this is worth knowing about. So far there is no known cure for it.

We spend our days and nights looking at screens and books. We are constantly straining our eyes, we need to look after them as they are an important tool of our trade.

The study that has been running for the last 15 years is showing that there could be a simple way to look after our eyes. Eat an orange a day… Yes it’s that simple.

The study was done in Australia with 2,000 adults aged 50 and over and along with other fruits/veg and taking vitamins the study showed that the only thing that had a distinct effect was eating oranges. In fact it showed 60% of the adults that ate an orange a day showed little to no macular degeneration against the other trial groups that tried other means. It doesn’t say whether orange juice has the same properties. Maybe that will need further investigation but this indeed is good news for all of us.
