fruits and vegetables helps ward off the onset of
age related macular degeneration (AMD). Currently,

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.

are one of the most significant contributors to today’s
most serious environmental problems. Urgent action
is required to remedy the situation.”
