business news in context, analysis with attitude

The Washington Post reports that two new studies indicate that a steady diet of seafood can help prevent macular degeneration, which is a primary cause of blindness in older people. “The omega-3 fatty acids found in fish such as salmon are already known to help the heart and brain stay healthy,” according to the Post. “The new studies, appearing Monday in the Archives of Ophthalmology, add to evidence that fish eaters also protect the eyes.”

In this case, “steady diet” means eating fish once or twice a week.

On the other hand, one of the studies says that people who smoke are twice as likely to contract macular degeneration as people who do not.

Eat fish, don’t smoke, and run less of a chance of losing eyesight?

Seems so easy.

On the other hand, there are none so blind as those who will not see.
