Mouse Study: Antioxidants In Coffee May Prevent Age-Related Eye Diseases.

The Montgomery (AL) Advertiser (5/6) reports that according to a mouse study published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, “the powerful antioxidants found in coffee can play a role in preventing age-related eye diseases and the degeneration of eyesight.” Researchers found that mice treated with chlorogenic acid, an antioxidant, “developed no sign of retinal damage.” However, optometrist Bryan Holman, OD, “believes instead that quitting smoking and eating kale provide greater chances in fighting degeneration.” Dr. Holman recommends eating kale because it contains the antioxidant lutein, which in turn lessens bleeding chances in age-related macular degeneration.
