Antioxidants for Eye Health

According to a recent study, a diet high in antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables helps ward off the onset of age related macular degeneration (AMD). Currently, more than 13 million Americans show signs of AMD, the leading cause of blindness in Americans aged 55 and older. The study, conducted by Harvard researchers, followed 934 people ages 67 - 71 and discovered that those who consumed higher levels of vitamin C, beta-carotene and antioxidants, had lower levels of AMD.

Get Active for the Planet

Is global warming a reality? Is it your responsibility? Can you influence on the planet’s destiny? Yes, yes, and yes! According to a recent report published by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization, animal agriculture generates more greenhouse gas emissions than automobiles. The chief of FAO’s Livestock Information & Policy Branch stated: “Livestock are one of the most significant contributors to today’s most serious environmental problems. Urgent action is required to remedy the situation.”
