Many latest studies on the nutrition for the eyes lead back to reporting what our great-grandmothers always believed in - 'Eat lots of greens and fresh fruit'; 'Stay out of too much sun' and 'Go out and get some fresh air'. What recent studies now add to their reports is the mantra 'Drink plenty of water' and 'Omega 3's are good for you'.
When looking after your eyes, you should take a wholesome approach to assessing what is natural in maintaining the good health of your body. The eyes are part of your body, hence many health conditions can be often be detected through the changes within the eyes e.g. diabetes, high blood pressure, multiple sclerosis. Most of us are born healthy with an ideal weight and healthy genes but we sabotage our bodies because of our ignorance and 'following the herd' on our adopted lifestyles. We then justify the poor living and ignore the signals our body gives out to us until we can no longer sense those signals. Some studies have also shown that although we may inherit certain genes that could lead to eye and health conditions, they may not necessarily manifest or we may be able to delay their manifestation if we choose to live healthily.
