Got Grapes?

An interesting study has shown that eating grapes might help prevent age-related macular degeneration, or AMD. AMD is the leading cause of blindness among people 65 and older in the United States. A study published last month in Free Radical Biology and Medicine supports the notion that antioxidants, such as those in grapes, appear to be directly beneficial for retinal health and function, which should offer protection against developing AMD. http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0891584911012081
