Eye health is extremely important for the prevention of serious eye diseases
Such as cataract, glaucoma, and cancer of the eye. However, one should also pay close attention to diet, because certain foods can cause health issues if consumed in large quantities.
– Frozen fish. According to emerging research, eating just two to three portions of fish per week is not enough to maintain optimal eye health. Fish contain mercury, which can be very harmful to young children and pregnant women, even though they do not generally contain high levels of this toxic element. Because of this, a considerable amount of seafood is now being replaced by fish in diets. To get more protein and essential nutrients, add shrimp, or chicken breast to your diet instead.
Below is a list of eye health foods that you should avoid:
– Cats. As someone who has been keeping cats for many years, I can tell you that cats are one of the most misunderstood animals out there. From pet superstars to animal rights activists, people seem to think cats are just meat for them to enjoy at a restaurant. While cat meat is certainly good for the cat’s health and welfare, it is not something that can promote good eye health.
Cats have two types of lens, the retinal pigment epithelium and the vitreous gel. The epithelium is thin and fragile, easily damaged if the lens is strained, scraped, or banged against other objects, such as furniture or window sills. When the vitreous gel breaks down, the nutrients that are present in the structure are released into the eye, which can impact the retina and cause cataracts if they are not properly handled. In addition, cats can develop carotid-related eye diseases from the build-up of protein, which is created by the production of the protein in response to inflammation.
long-term exposure may be responsible for many cases
Researchers have also discovered that long-term ultraviolet (UV) light exposure can lead to cataract development. Years ago, doctors thought that UV light treated certain types of eye diseases, but now they know better. Long-term ultraviolet radiation exposure has been associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease, age-related macular degeneration, cataract, and certain types of cancer, according to a recent study. In fact, even non-melanoma skin cancers have been associated with long-term ultraviolet radiation exposure. Now, it appears that this same kind of long-term exposure may be responsible for many cases of chronic cataract in humans.
Researchers found that people who are deficient in vitamin a had more wrinkles in their retinas, which may lead to vision loss. Those who were vitamin a poor had eyes that did not respond to bright light well or did not heal well after being injured. In addition, those with vitamin deficiencies were more likely to have vitamin a deficiency and had normal blood pressure levels, suggesting a link between the two diseases.
