Omega-3s Reduce AMD

In this study of 3,772 white, black, Hispanic, Latino, and Asian participants, 5.7 percent had early-stage age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Doctors measured levels of the omega-3s DHA and EPA, and analyzed detailed fundus photographs of the retina to determine the health status of the eye.

As levels of DHA and EPA increased, chances for early AMD decreased. Those with the highest levels of DHA and EPA, separately or together, were 41 to 53 percent less likely to have early-stage AMD compared to those with the lowest levels. Diet quality, race, or ethnicity did not change the findings, leading doctors to conclude chances for AMD are related specifically to omega-3s.
