ANOTHER REASON TO EAT FISH

Posted: 06.6.2017
Eating fatty fish may cut the risk for blindness in those with type 2 diabetes. Diabetic retinopathy is a complication of type 2 diabetes that can cause blindness because of reduced blood supply to the retina. A new analysis of data on 3,400 people with type 2 diabetes looked at the correlation between intake of omega 3 fats from seafood and the risk of diabetic retinopathy. The researchers found that those who regularly consumed an average of two servings per week of fatty fish had a 50% reduced risk of developing diabetic retinopathy than those who ate less than that.
