AMD and Red Meat

A link has been found between eating too much red meat and vision loss. Researchers from the Royal Victorian Eye and Ear Hospital and the Centre for Eye Research Australia (CERA) have found an association between red meat consumption and an increased risk of early Age Related Macular Degeneration (AMD). The frst detailed study in the world to look at the link between meat consumption and macular degeneration examined the diets of 6,734 people across Melbourne aged between 58 and 69 years. Report author Dr. Elaine Chong said there was an association between people who ate red meat more than ten times a week and early AMD.
