Low Glycemic Diet Could be Good for Your Eyes
A low glycemic diet is one in which sugars from food are of the type (typically from high fiber starches) which release slowly into the blood. There are a number of known benefits, mainly as it relates to diabetes, weight loss, etc. But, now researchers from Tufts University have discovered that in mice a low glycemic diet stops the development of age-related macular degeneration (AMD) in the eyes, a major problem in aging. A high glycemic diet, on the other hand, contributed to AMD conditions. A low-glycemic diet already makes lots of sense, so with this additional potential benefit it is definitely worth pursuing.
