Leafy Greens May Keep Vision Clear

An Ohio State University study, published in the Journal of Nutrition, offers good laboratory evidence that two carotenoids, lutein and zeaxanthin, found in dark green leafy vegetables such as spinach, kale, collard greens, corn and marigold petals can help prevent cataracts.

Researchers found that lutein and zeaxanthin helped protect human eye lens cells from ultraviolet light, a leading cause of cataracts. In this study it was shown that Lutein and Zeaxanthin were nearly 10 times more powerful than vitamin E in protecting the lens cells from UV damage. "Along with the many environmental, lifestyle and genetic risk factors associated with cataracts, exposure to ultraviolet radiation from sunlight and oxidative stress appear to be the most relevant in this disease," stated study co-author Joshua Bomser, an assistant professor of nutrition.
