As you age, the lens of your eye can become clouded, impairing your vision. These opacities in what otherwise would be a transparent lens are called cataracts, and they represent the most common cause of blindness worldwide.

Although conventional surgical treatment is an important consideration in the management of advanced cataracts, the medical establishment often fails to emphasize the need to optimize your antioxidant intake -- which has now been established as a strategy that can significantly lower your risk.

Researchers at Guangzhou Medical University and Jinan University in Guangzhou, China, selected 13 studies that included a total of 18,999 participants for their analysis. The studies evaluated the risk of cataracts in association with blood levels of vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E, alpha-carotene, beta-carotene, lutein, zeaxanthin, lycopene, and beta-cryptoxanthin.

Watch Dr. Mike explain the results published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. This is very exciting.
