High Levels of Vitamin C May Protect Against Progression of Cataracts

A new study carried out by British researchers has shown that high levels of vitamin C may be protective against the progression of cataracts. Published in the Ophthalmology journal by scientists at King’s College, London, the study followed the development of cataracts in the eyes of 324 pairs of female twins over a period of 10 years. It found that participants with higher intakes of vitamin C were associated with a 33 percent reduction in the risk of cataract progression and had ‘clearer’ lenses than those who consumed lower levels.
