Degenerazione maculare, gli Omega-3 aiutano
Regular consumption of fish, nuts, olive oil and other foods containing omega-3 fatty acids is associated with a decreased risk of macular degeneration from aging. There is increasing evidence of the benefits of a regular intake of fish and PUFA in the diet on the risk of this eye condition, especially in those with a low omega-3/omega-6 ratio, but so far the evidence of an association between macular degeneration and total fats or other types of lipids, such as saturated and monounsaturated fatty acids has not been constant.
