It’s great when medical studies support what we have been telling our patients and clients for years.

A study published in the Archives of Ophthalmology describes how a good diet, regular exercise, and the avoidance of smoking can reduce one’s risk of developing early age-related macular degeneration.  The study revealed that there was little difference in whether one smoked for a long time or only briefly; any history of smoking puts you in the higher risk category.  The findings are based on a study of 1313 participants ranging in age from 55 to 74 years.  Source: Medscape
