Can supplementation also do it? Reply Chris Del Ⓥ December 30, 2013 Damn,Goji berries are so expensive 🙁 Reply Edith Spencer December 30, 2013 Recently the New York Times had a column in which the author, who worked with Dean Ornish, took a rather mean and nasty shot at Ornish and presented her recipes for eggs- of course, this being the NYT, organic, pastured, grass fed , etc. If one brought up the fact that eggs have like 70% of the daily allowance for dietary cholesterol, there was some foolish, and I mean DEEPLY FOOLISH, babble about how dietary cholesterol was not to blame for heart attacks and cardio vascular disease. OY! Reply Anand D. December 30, 2013 Middlehen… Dr. Greger, your puns are so wonderfully awful that they become funny again. Reply Victor Crosswell December 30, 2013 Just to add some info- Substantial amounts of lutein and zeaxanthin (30-50%) were also present in kiwi fruit, grapes, spinach, orange juice, zucchini (or vegetable marrow), and different kinds of squash. Most of the dark green leafy vegetables, previously recommended for a higher intake of lutein and zeaxanthin, have 15-47% of lutein, but a very low content (0-3%) of zeaxanthin. Our study shows that fruits and vegetables of various colours can be consumed to increase dietary intake of lutein and zeaxanthin.

Can I get back my 20/20 vision with food, or is just inevidable that I'll eventually need glasses? Reply ruth giloy October 6, 2014 do we need to cook the corn ?

Reply ay300000 January 15, 2016 Did you ever consider giving a professional reader read this narrative for you???!! Man, your voice is like a comic/tragic theater actor high on weed… Reply johnny102marvin September 13, 2016 I was in the health food store a few days ago, and I saw where one can purchase zeaxantin and lutein supplements. Since this is a very critical issue, it seems like taking these supplements would be a prudent thing to do along with eating goji berries, spinach, and other veggies. It seems that the supplements would just be added insurance. What say you? Reply Bio Hacker April 28, 2017 I am blasting out the trail mix on the daily, n have been for months now.. Reply Aziz Rabie July 11, 2017 CORRECTTION: cataracts are due to yellowing of the crystalline lens of the eye not the cornea as mentioned in the video. Reply Zoltan300 July 11, 2017 Thank you for this. Reply fun2cook July 29, 2017 "Cut out the middle hen." Ha ha. Good one. 🙂 Reply Shara Elyse August 15, 2017 Dr. Gregor, I was born with a small triangle-looking cataract on my right eye. This eye has gotten so much better in the 45 days of transitioning to a whole food, plant based diet and my question is: Can eliminating animal and animal based foods from my diet make it go away? Or am I just stuck with it? Thanks! Reply Roy van Kuik December 8, 2017 Hi Dr. Greger. Just wanted to point out that UV light does not reach the retina. It is absorbed in the lens and cornea before it can reach the retina. Current generation cataract lenses come with a UV filter and are tinted yellow. I would love to see more updates on this subject. As an optician I see many people with mild to severe MD. They often ask, what can I do to prevent worsening of the symptoms? I really feel sad for them because they don't have a clue. Typically they are overweight smoke and drink, where do I start explaining that it's too late to fix the problem and they need to turn their whole world around. Usually I tell them to live a healthy lifestyle and to keep in contact with their doctors. Reply Gary McKinnon July 2, 2018 ".. cut out the middle-hen .." 🙂 Reply Gold Wolf January 1, 2019 The Lens is where the cataracts are formed, not the cornea… Reply Sharon's poetry Corner #Enjoy! February 5, 2019 My FAVORITE channel!This man is a GENIUS! 😊 Reply Nicko April 7, 2019 "the yellowing of our corneas when we get cataracts" are you sure you are a doctor? Reply Erast Van Doren May 8, 2019 1. Why do you mix up macula, cornea and eye's lens?2. Macula degeneration is actually cholesterol buildup. Yes, plant base ultra low fat diet helps. But only because it lowers cholesterol!!3. Big dislike. Reply Angela August 9, 2019 middle hen hahaha Reply Add a Comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
